Snow Monsters & Mountain Explorers
Snow Monsters (Ages 5-7) and Mountain Explorers (ages 8-12) makes learning the basics and the more advanced elements of winter sports for kids easy and fun! Kids enjoy a day on the snow practicing techniques, learning skier/snowboarder ethics, and participating in fun mini-games, all while parents enjoy some freedom on the slopes!
Lift tickets are required for anyone accessing the snow; it is your "admission" onto the snow.
Participants will be divided into groups based on their age, skill level, and physical development and could move from one group to another within the lesson. Lessons are 3 hours and snacks are provided.

TIPS AND TRICKS
- Review the weather forecast. Dress your child appropriately: Calf or knee length socks (non-cotton are best), waterproof gloves, a winter hat, and wind proof jacket and pants are recommended. Sunscreen and sunglasses/goggles may be needed for a sunny day.
- Please, no knitted gloves. they soak up water fast and snow sticks to them. Sturdy gloves will make it easier to hold onto the rope tow.
- Dress in layers. Bring extra socks and gloves. Remember, you can always remove or add clothing if you have it.
- Know your child's height and weight before arrival. It is important that this information is accurate as it will be used to issue equipment for your child.
- Make sure your child has had a hearty meal or snack prior to the lesson.
- A warm and dry kid is a happy kid!
