The Loveland Basin Ski Club was incorporated as a non-profit alpine ski club on July 1, 1965. In 1981 the name was changed to the Loveland Basin Racing Club due to the clubs emphasis and commitment to alpine ski racing. Over the years many top level racers have trained with the club. The club is comprised of ski racers and parents dedicated to maximizing the individual skiing and racing skills of our members.
The primary goal of the Loveland Ski Club is to enable our athletes to reach their highest individual potential. To achieve the goal of true skill development, we are committed to the idea that “Greatness isn’t born, it’s grown” and we ardently believe that athletes are better served by training more frequently and racing an appropriate schedule. In the long run, we believe that this focus on the three arenas of skill development, within the Loveland Method of Progression, will provide the foundation to make Loveland athletes successful in skiing and life.
In The Talent Code, Daniel Coyle writes about the Spartak Tennis Club in Moscow that produced more top-twenty-ranked women than the United States from 2005 to 2007, as well as half the men’s team that won the 2006 Davis Cup. All this was accomplished on one spartan indoor court. Spartak’s motto is, “Technique is Everything.” This “talent hotbed” has found extraordinary success through a commitment to fundamental skill development. This is our focus at Loveland.
