JUST BECAUSE I'M ME
This is our introductory program, specifically tailored to your three and four year olds. We understand a full day of skiing can be a lot for young children, so our main focus is to make sure your child has the most fun while getting acquainted with this new sport. We focus extra time on getting used to skis and ski boots before tackling the mountain in our special snowmobile. Children must be potty trained and willing to participate.

If my child has a specific medical condition, what is the staff trained for?
While instructors cannot administer any medication, they can carry any medication/epi-pens in a specially marked pack with a form filled out by parents with specifics about the medication. Children must be able to administer medication themselves, or parents can arrange to meet the class at lunch.

Every child in Ski & Ride School will be equipped with a GPS unit. At the end of the day instructors will hand out a Flaik code to parents and kids who can then go online winterparkresort.com/flaik to track vertical feet and map runs. Information will be available by 5pm the day of the lesson.
