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.

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.
