Breckenridge Bombers

Breck Bombers Program

Breckenridge Bombers is a multi-week program that is in its 26th year as one of the most progressive children's ski and snowboard programs available.

The Bombers Program provides coaching for all levels of skiing and riding. Our goal is to assist your child in developing solid technique in a fun, safe and confidence-building environment. We also strive to have participants with the same instructor and class for the duration of Bombers. Classes are formed based on age and ability. Three types of Bombers programs exist: All-Mountain Bombers, Freestyle Bombers and Pee Wee Bombers. Bombers will provide lunch to all participants, and participants will eat lunch with their instructor.

Freestyle Bombers

Freestyle Bombers teaches skiers and snowboarders (riders) tricks on natural features as well as in the terrain parks.  It is open to intermediate and advanced participants ONLY (meaning that they are VERY confident on ALL blue terrain).  However, participants do not need any previous experience in Freestyle.  Participants should understand that this program mostly focuses on the park & pipe, including jumps, boxes, rails, and half-pipe.  

Students that do not demonstrate the required skill set on the first day of the program will either be moved to an All-Mountain Bombers class, if room is still available, or their reservation will be cancelled.

Pee-Wee Bombers

Through this program, your 3 year old will have a fun-filled day while receiving individualized attention and instruction.  This program is for 3 year olds who will progress through the season together.  At the beginning of this program all children will have individual ski time with an instructor, while the rest of the group will be taking part an indoor activity.  As children progress to the point that they are stopping and turning without assistance, children will be grouped with other 3 year olds of the same ability and get more ski time.  

This program is for 3 year old skiers only. All children must be fully potty trained prior to the start of the program.  No diapers or pull-ups! Traditional Pee-Wee Bombers is offered at both the Gondola and Beaver Run ski areas.

Program Clarifications

One of the greatest attributes of the Bombers program is to have each child with the same class from start to finish. However, the first week of the program is always spent ensuring that classes have been grouped correctly. During this time, kids may be moved to a different class. We try not to have this process spread past the first week and in most situations it does not. However, a small portion of the children will be moved again in the second week of the program to ensure a good fit. This process is always going to be a part of the Bombers program no matter how hard we try to get kids into the correct class before the program even begins. Your patience and the patience of your child are appreciated during this process.

Additionally, there are instances when instructors get sick or injured, or have personal situations that they must attend to. In any of these unavoidable situations, we will not offer refunds.
Finally, if your child is participating in the December Bombers program as well as the regular Bombers program in January and February, they are not guaranteed the same class and the same instructor in both programs.

Lift Access

December Bombers Only 3-day lift tickets are available when registering for December Bombers for $60 for all 3 days of December Bombers. Bombers Only 7-day lift tickets are available when registering for Bombers for $140 for all 7 days of Bombers.

All Bombers participants must have a lift ticket or a season pass to participate. Lift tickets must give access to all lifts including the surface lifts (e.g. magic carpet) and chair lifts. To purchase a season pass please contact the Vail Resorts Sales Office (800-842-8062; or EpicPass.com). Three and Four Year Olds can pick up a complimentary season pass at any Season Pass office.

Classes

Classes are formed based on age and ability levels.

As stated above under “Program Clarifications,” there may be changes to classes during the first week to two weeks of the program to ensure that classes are grouped properly. When registering, you will be provided a definition of ability levels and you will be asked to assign an ability level to your child. Please be as accurate as possible in order for us to place your child in the correct class from the very beginning. When registering, you will be able to make any special requests for your child’s class, such as a specific instructor or having your child in the same class as a friend. These requests are not guaranteed, but we will do our best.

Location and Time

Class times are from 9:00am to 3:00pm. You will receive more information on exactly where and when to meet your instructor in an email that will be sent out before the start of Bombers. Most likely the meeting location will be at the bottom of the Gondola in town and you will meet your child’s instructor between 8:00am and 8:30am.

Some of the 3 year old Bombers will be located out of our Beaver Run facility. If you register your 3 year old for the Beaver Run PeeWee program and you have older children in the Bombers program, you will have time to drop the 3 year old off first at Beaver Run and then drop the older children off at the base of the Gondola. Times and locations are subject to change.

Parking, Transportation & Drop-Off Options

This information will be sent out in an email to participants prior to the start of Bombers.

Equipment

Participants are required to provide their own equipment. Rentals will not be provided through the Bombers Program. Breckenridge Ski Resort does not take responsibility for lost or stolen equipment. Many skis and snowboards look very much alike if not identical, therefore it is highly recommended that you put your child’s name and contact information on their equipment.

Lunch

The Bombers program does include lunch. Bombers participants eat lunch with their instructor. Our ski school lunch facilities do NOT allow any nut products due to allergies (this includes Peanut Butter). Please do not include any nuts or nut-based products with your child.

Child Care Passes

This information will be sent out in an email to all participants prior to the start of the program.
