Youth Lessons

At this time, we are not taking any new reservations for the 2020/2021 winter season. You can learn more about this decision here.

Youth Center programs for 4-12 year olds will now only be offered as a half day program, no lunch will be provided. 

The Youth Ski & Snowboard Center is focused on providing programs for skiing or snowboarding that relate specifically to youth ages 4 through 12. The lessons have been built around our Mountain Accomplishment Program (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.
