Established in 1979 , the Buddy Werner Youth Snow Sports League is an all-volunteer club providing ski race training and ski race participation to the youth of South Lake Tahoe and Western El Dorado County (Buddy Werner Biography). The focus is on slalom racing, but those skills make participants able to ski better under all conditions. There are “developmental” and “Race” teams so kids are paired with others of similar ability and interest. We also stress fun over hard core competition and allow kids to pair up with friends and request specific coaches. Virtually every successful high school racer started in a Buddy Werner program. The program meets weekends during the season. The season is current anticipated to be from December 3, 2016 through April 2, 2017, but could change based on ski conditions. Eligibility Requirements:
- Skiers must be between age seven (7) and fourteen (14), but not beyond 8th grade, as of December 10, 2016.
- Skiers must have some basic skiing ability, that is, be able to stop, turn left, turn right, and be able to independently load and unload from the ski lift.
We will take it from there! Skiers must be responsible for their own equipment and clothing, and to provide for their transportation to and from ski practices and races, which are held at the Sierra-At-Tahoe (S@T) Resort on US 50, west of Echo Summit. Participants must be signed in and out daily by a parent or guardian. Registration Fees (updated for 2017-2018 season):
- Registration for 1 Skier: $ 125
- Registration for 2 Skiers: $ 240 (In the same family)
- Registration for 3 Skiers: $ 350 (In the same family)
- Registration for 4+ Skiers: $75 each additional skier
- Background check fee: $25 per volunteer/parent skier
In addition, skiers are responsible for lift tickets or season passes and equipment. Add $25.00 for late registration after November 12th (postmarked November 10th). We are also always in need of parent volunteers on the runs, on the course, and in the lodge. All volunteers must register and are subject to a background check.

The club also makes single-day passes available for parents, volunteers, and family/friends the want to spend the day on the slopes while their children are with the club.
