Ski and snowboard instructors trained to teach junior lessons are the best! They are super friendly and enthusiastic about teaching children to become lifelong skiers and snowboarders! Our instructors love winter and look forward to sharing their skiing and snowboarding skills with students. More than just a lesson, our instructors will introduce students to a lifetime sport that is healthy, fun and family oriented, while concentrating on safety.

Participants meet in The Learning Center (TLC) located in the Sunset Lodge. TLC has a conveniently located ski and snowboard rental area for children participating in lessons. This eliminates parents and children travelling to the Rental Center for the child’s equipment. Parents may purchase lift tickets, rentals, and lessons for the whole family in TLC.

Children's lessons are offered for all levels, from first-timers, who want to see what the excitement is about, through advanced levels, who wish to be superstars. Ski class lessons are available for ages 4-12; snowboard class lessons are offered to children ages 6-12. Children are grouped by age and ability level with a small instructor-to-student ratio.  Lessons are offered daily and you may register your child for single or multiple lessons. Class lesson registration begins one hour prior to the start of the lesson time and is closed 15 minutes prior to the lesson time.  Register one hour prior to avoid missing your preferred lesson time as classes frequently sell out at peak times, especially if rentals are required.  Junior class lessons are 1.5 hours in length.

Supervision is provided from the registration time until the end of the lesson. At the end of class, children may enjoy a cup of hot chocolate while parents review their child’s progress with the instructor. Progress cards are given to parents to help track their child’s improvement throughout the winter.
