About the Children's Ski & Snowboard programs
Learnign to snowboard while its snowing out

Our kids programs teach the foundations of skiing and snowboarding in a safe, fun-filled environment. Concerned about whether your child will enjoy ski school or not? Here are some tips to ease the transition to this sport: and create excitement about their lessons:

  • Talk up skiing and snowboarding to get your child curious and excited.
  • Express abundant excitement about your trip to the mountains.
  • Have them drink lots of water. Hydration is important not only the day of, but the days prior as well.
  • Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep, is well-fed, and prepared to wake up early and depart for the mountain.
  • Lunch is included with the full day program and other snacks will be provided as well. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated upon request. Please make a note of any restrictions or food allergies when purchasing.
  • Parents are required to remain on premises during the lesson in case of an emergency.
  • If your child has special needs or requires special accommodations please notify our team ahead of time.
  • Lessons will run from 10am to 3:30pm.
