Grouse Tyee Programs Overview

Grouse Mountain Tyee Ski Club is in the business of developing the physical and ski specific qualities of kids aged 6-18 (through our U8, U10U12, U14, U16 and U18/ VST programs).

Note that Tyee does not offer snowboarding, freestyle ski or nordic ski programs.

Our programs are generally by year of birth. The "U" in our program names stands for "under", so we have Under 8 (years old), Under 10, Under 12, Under 14, etc.

For racers 16+, Tyee collaborates with the other Vancouver clubs to deliver a quality FIS program, the Vancouver Ski Team (VST).  At the beginning of 2009 we undertook a rebuilding project for the VST and it is working very well since.

Tyee is also very proud to work in cooperation with Vancouver Adaptive Snow Sports (VASS) to provide skiers with cognitive or physical limitations the opportunity to participate in on-snow sports.  For more information, please check out the VASS website.
