This program focuses on Safety, Fun and Learning. Games are played that include important skills needed to be a good skier or snowboarder. These classes meet three times for 1 1/2 hours and include a slope ticket and rental of equipment and helmet for each day. Please arrive 1 hour before the lesson time to check in and get equipment so that the child is ready when the lesson begins. At the end of the third class, progress reports will be given to each child and may be used as a guideline for future lessons. Snow sport helmets are required for all students and are included in the fee. Bike helmets are not acceptable.
The main goal for younger children is for them to get used to being on skis. Through play and simple games they learn basic ski skills that may be built upon in their future skiing. Children at this age have a relatively short attention span so each game is based on one skill with the intention of keeping the children interested in skiing and not overwhelmed by the experience. The slope ticket, lesson, rental of equipment and helmet are included for each day.
