Youth Lessons

Youth Ski & Snowboard Center

The Youth Ski & Snowboard Center is focused on providing programs for skiing or snowboarding that relate specifically to youth. The lessons have been built around our Mountain Accomplishment Program or MAP, a progress report system that records the student's growth of their skills through our programs. After each lesson the MAP progress report is presented to the parents and student allowing both to understand the development of skills. Each time a student returns for a lesson we recommend bringing back the original MAP progress report allowing our coaches to focus on continuing to develop the student's skills moving forward in the programs.

Private Lessons

Whether your child is a beginner or an expert with any skills in between Private Lessons are a great way to hone their skills and have more fun. These lessons are offered in varying lengths to best accommodate their needs and goals. The coach will work with them to develop a personal plan to advance them to their goal at a rate that keeps them comfortable and safe on the slopes.

We highly recommend only a one hour lesson for children ages 3-4. For children ages 5-12 a two hour lesson at minimum allows students the time to gain new skills and receive coaching with feedback on various terrain.

If you choose to have more than one person in a lesson, the coach will teach to the lowest skill level of one of the students. It is best to take two separate private lessons if there are different skill levels in the same family or group.
