Highlights / General details
Pioneers Ski Lesson (Ages 3-4):
This ski program is an "educational learn to ski program" specially set up for this age group. The learning objective is to familiarize the child with the equipment, the snow environment and to have FUN! All skiing for Pioneers will start in our beginner backyard on the flats or the Magic Carpets and then move to a chairlift when ready. Up to 2 hours of skiing in the morning and afternoon.
A full day of skiing can be a lot for this age group. Please keep in mind that the Pioneers ski program is a physically demanding program and your child must be willing to ski and separate from you. Pioneers enrolled must be able to use the bathroom independently to participate. Please note that this is not Day Care. It may be recommended for your child to start out with a half day session. Extra breaks will be given in the afternoon if needed.
Explorers Ski Lesson (Ages 5-7):
The focus of Explorers is to enhance learning by exploring the mountain and keep the kids smiling.

The full day session includes several hours of on-snow instruction and a lunch break. Please remember to pack a snack in your child's pocket.
