My son started GS racing this year (He's 9). I put him in hard boots and found him (here on Bomber) a A145 board, and he has been ripping it. He has a great mentor who has been training him, and has made great progress due to the training. The issue I am seeing slowly creeping up is mentally, disruptions like this past weekend can play havoc with him and so I think (and have been advised) putting him in a more group atmosphere with team support might be the best for him. I am wondering if anyone has any advise on which mountains have the best weekend programs and coaching. I don't want to put him in school (weekday grade school) , but can dedicate the weekends and vacations as needed. He is extremely into the sport, and likes the speed of GS / SL / Boardercross so I am looking for a program that isn't focused on the park or freestyle. Any experiences and thoughts are appreciated, as I have looked at Loon and Waterville Valley, and each has there respective advantages and disadvantages.... Thanks in advance..
