The Spyder Factory Team was created to provide unparalleled manufacturer support to the nation's top junior skiers. Our goal is to build a program that gives junior athletes the leg up they need to build a life in skiing. Whether they dream of college, national programs, or the Olympics, Spyder's goal is to stop at nothing to help the next generation achieve their dream on snow.

The inaugural Spyder Factory Team consists of junior alpine race and freeski skiers. Having earned their spot on the team, each member will receive over the course of at least two seasons: world-class products, coaching, and meaningful financial support so they can focus on skiing.
