Children's Ski & Ride Lessons

3-Year-Old Individualized Lesson Program

Our 3-Year-Old Program is designed to set your child up for success. Children are instructed using a combination of indoor and outdoor activities that:

1. Promote muscle memory
2. Improve balance
3. Reinforce basic skiing skills

All this, combined with a one-on-one lesson on snow from one of our Pro ski instructors, will help your child become a happy and safe little skier.

Our one-on-one lessons benefit your child because:
- The pro can devote all of their attention to your child and not have to manage a group of children. Your child will never feel like they have to wait for attention, which is important for 3-year-olds.
- Individualized lessons pace the day appropriately for the development of a 3-year-old.

Our approach provides increased individual focus for each child with more skiing time dedicated to the child’s level and needs.

The Discovery Guide will continue through the daily schedule below with the children while the instructor rotates his/her one-on-one lessons.

Everyone Skis as a Class

Individual skiing times are 1 hour increments throughout the day. Parents can request to be called with the child’s ski time.

All students will ski as a team @ 3:00. This is a great time to watch your child.

If requested by the parent and a 3-yr-old can stop and turn, they are welcome to ski in a 4-6 year old class.

Any questions during the day, please call 888-576-2754
