Freestyle, All Mountain and Development Ski & Ride Programs for ages 5 and up. 

Affordable season long fun!

The Core Team is a Freestyle and All-Mountain youth development and competition ski and snowboard program operated by the Whaleback Mountain Club, separately from UVSSF.  Whaleback Mountain Club is a registered non-profit organization that is comprised of local families who embody the spirit and values of the Core Team and love for snow sports.  We operate with the support of Whaleback Mountain to offer affordable, season long programs.    Our goal is to develop athletes in a fun and nurturing environment and inspire enthusiasm for winter sports.  We ski and ride as teams encouraging each individual to progress to the best of their ability, whether as a recreational skier/snowboarder or as a competitor.

  • Affordable Seasonal Programs for youth ages 5 thru 17, novice to competition levels
  • Competition teams include: Freestyle and Snowboard
  • Development teams include: MiniCore, MiniCore Plus, DEVO Comp and Jr. Freestyle
  • Non-competition Core All-Mountain Team
  • Multiple Child Discount and Flex program allows you to build a program and schedule to suit your athlete and family’s schedule and budget.
Core Team this weekend and other reminders!

Hello everyone,

We hope you enjoyed the fresh powder last night at the Whale!!! Sounds like there will be more on the way today as well, which will make a great weekend!  There will be another race at the mountain, so the lodge may be rather busy again.  Please plan accordingly.  Also, our Competition Freestyle Team will be competing at Crotched Mountain this weekend, so a lot of the board members will be attending that. However, if you need anything please email or reach out via the Team App (see below). Wish our team luck!

A few other reminders: 

  • Don't forget to sign up for Masters of the Mountain! This will take place in just over a week on Sunday, 2/5. Again, this is open to all non USSA competing athletes and encouraged for all core and mini core teams. It is really a fun event.
    This year we are happy to offer this event FREE of charge to all Whaleback Core Team Athletes. When registering, fill out the first form and when you get to the Payment form, simply hit cancel. The system will still send a registration confirmation and add your athlete to the list. 

  • We still need volunteers for MOM!  As of right now we have almost 100 athletes attending this event from our team, Quechee, FordSayer, Sunapee, etc. This event is all run with the help of volunteers. Please go to this page and see how you can help out. There are several positions open that don't take all day and a lot that are outside so you will still be able to see the event. We are also looking for people to make cookies!!! We hand these out to the kids as they wrap up their last run.

  • ​Join the Team Chat App! Stay up to date on what is going on with events, news and other information on our Team App. To get the full features of this app please go to the App Store or Google Play and download Stack Team App onto your mobile device, then follow these simple steps:

    • Sign-up to Stack Team App. You'll be sent an e-mail to activate your account.

    • Log-in and search for Whaleback Mountain Club, then request to become a member.  Please add your child’s name or write coach in the comment section.
