Giving young skiers and ski racers an opportunity to develop and improve their skills through participation in a quality program that emphasizes safety, fun and skill development. Our developmental team program challenges each athlete to do their best while maintaining the enjoyment of skiing. The skills gained through this program can help individuals build a healthy active lifestyle while participating in a life long sport.
The success of the Mankato D-Team is dependent upon a volunteer community.
The Mankato D-Team, Mount Kato home race and Family Fun Races are all worked by volunteers. Volunteer sign-ups are managed through the Shutterfly site.
