Ski + Ride School For Kids

Often parents put their children on steep terrain too soon, resulting in frustrated, tired kids. At the Ski + Ride School, children ages 3 to 14 enjoy a fun-filled day with new friends learning new skills. All lessons focus on building essential techniques with the emphasis on safety.

The introductory program for 3-4 year olds makes sure your child has the most fun while learning a new sport. Instructors focus on kids getting used to skis and ski boots before taking to the mountain in a special snowmobile.

Skiers and snowboarders ages 4-6 and 7-14 learn new skill and techniques with skiers and riders of the same age and ability. Full-day lessons include lunch. Max4 half day lessons are limited to four students for increased individual attention.

Every instructor has been trained to use Guest Centered Teaching™ to give your child the best experience.

Whatever your skill level, a lesson at the Ski + Ride School will improve your day on the mountain.
