A Lesson with a child and backs turned


Mountain Adventure Class Lessons for Ages 4-12

Let us teach your child to ski or snowboard so they can join you later for family fun on the slopes!

Our class lessons for children ages 4-12 are available Saturday, Sunday, and daily during our holiday periods. These options are offered in your choice of two-hour and four-hour sessions.
