Our premier season-long program is open to novice through advanced level skiers and riders, ages 4-6 and 7-13. Students are grouped by like ages and ability levels and will ski/ride with the same group of coaches each program day. Explore the mountain and learn how to comfortably ski/ride the variety of terrain that Gore has to offer every Saturday and Sunday, December 16 – March 10 (no program January 13-14, and February 17-18). In addition to developing skiing and riding skills, students learn the importance of safety on the slopes and respect for other skiers/riders while also developing friendships and camaraderie with other students in the program.

New this season: We are adding a freestyle component for ages 11-13, for those kids who are already proficient skiers/riders and want to adventure into terrain parks. This sub-group of the season-long program will work with a team of coaches each Saturday and Sunday during their 8:30-12:30 program and focus on a variety of flatland tricks, natural terrain features on trails, glades, moguls, riding boxes & rails, and more, (no aerial maneuvers will be taught or allowed in this program).

Program Requirements: All participants must already be Novice level skiers/riders: able to turn in both directions, able to stop and stay in a controlled manner on easier-rated/green circle terrain, and have ridden a lift prior to the start of our program. New participants are evaluated on their first weekend and placed in a group with others of similar ability. See our chart to determine your child’s ability level.
