The Skiwerx Series, founded by MYSL in 2010, presents developmentally appropriate ski racing to kids in the U10, U12 and U14 age groups (8 - 13 years old). Skiwerx Series events are an introduction to skiing as sport and meant to be fun. The Skiwerx Series events are a preliminary, local experience, before a skier chooses to participate in the regional (three-state) CXC Youth Cup, primarily for U14 age groups.
