Junior and Youth/Adult Ski Lessons
Ski classes for Juniors (7 - 13 yrs old) or Youth/Adults(14
are available for all skiing abilities. Each session offers between four and six
hours of instruction and classes are divided into the following
Discover: If you've never skied before, then
our Discover program is the one to start out with. This program is designed to introduce
you to the sport of skiing, get comfortable with the equipment and get you
up and down on our Bunny Hill and Porcupine Hill.
Green: This level is offered for those who
have skiied before but are still more comfortable on the Bunny Hill. By the end
of the class, each skier should be able to ski unassisted on our Bunny Hill and
Porcupine Hill, and will be introduced to the TBar and possibly even the chairlift.
Blue: In the blue level, we perfect the snowplow
turn and introduce you to the basic parallel turn.
Black: In this level, our instructors will
assist you in improving your parallel turns including: balance, pivoting feet, edge
control and linked turns.
Red: This level is designed to fine-tune the
skills of the expert skier.
Note that if registration in some classes is low (1 or 2 students) then classes
may be combined instead of cancelled. For example, if only 1 person is registered
in the Red level and a few people in the Black level, then we would combine the
two levels into one class.
While your children are in lessons, why not ski or ride for the day.

or other adverse conditions.
If a class is missed due to illness or a scheduling conflict, we will give you a
guest pass which is valid for another day of skiing or snowboarding. However, a
lesson is not provided with the guest pass. No refunds or credits are given should
a class be missed for any reason.
