Welcome to the TR2 Hyland D-Team!

Ski with us this winter!

Youth Ski Racing for all ages and abilities!

The D-Team/JR Race team at Hyland Hills has a long legacy of teaching youth to ski better -  32 years running! The tradition of family friendly skiing and ski racing continues!   D stands for Development - we focus on developing strong skiing skills first and turn up the fun for the kids by applying these skills in the race course. 

We welcome youth ages 6-18 - no ski racing experience required!  We also offer a parent race clinic - why should kids have all the fun? 

TR2 is pleased to partner with Three Rivers Park District to offer exclusive access to youth ski racing in the MSDL (MN Snowsports Development League, aka the D-Team League), a league operated by several MN Ski Areas.  We are based out of Hyland Hills Ski Area in Bloomington.   League emphasis is on FUN and learning to ski well, with the added dimension of ski racing for more FUN and challenge... and more passion for a lifetime sport. 

We hope you make TR2 YOUR team this winter!  Registration is now open and this program fills up quickly. 

Below are some PDFs with great info.  If you have questions, don't hesitate to call Cindy McDonnell at 952-3343-223.

NEW for 2018-2019

All 8 MSDL races are included in the team fee.  With nearly 40 practices and 8 races available, your racers will have plenty of opportunity for fun!  If local ski areas offer bonus races (as Buck Hill did in spring 2018), we will field a team for that race also.  

On Saturday, January 12th, our first race is at Detroit Mountain.  This will be an opportunity for families to gather at an away race, at a delightful ski area in Detroit Lakes.  Detroit Mtn will offer discount lodging and lift tickets... and possibly a chance to run some gates on Sunday morning. 

Back by popular demand:  we will have a fun day (costumes, pot luck, games) on Sunday, March 10, snow conditions permitting!
