Breckenridge Bombers

Breck Bombers Program

Breckenridge Bombers is a multi-week program that is in its 27th 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. For more details, click the General Info tab below.

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 team 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 team. 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/ third 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 traditional Bombers program in January and February, they are not guaranteed the same team and the same instructor in both programs. 


Lift Access

  • All Bombers participants must have a lift ticket or a season pass to participate.
  • To purchase a season pass please contact the Vail Resorts Sales Office (800-842-8062). 
  • Three and Four Year Olds can pick up a complimentary season pass at any Season Pass office or Front Range season pass sales location. The child must be present as they will need to take a photo. 
  • The 5th and 6th grade "School of Shred" pass does not include enough days for the Bombers program. You will still need a Season Pass or additional lift tickets for the Bombers program.

  • As stated above under “Program Clarifications,” there may be changes to teams during the first week to two weeks of the program to ensure that teams 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 team from the very beginning. 
  • When registering, you will be able to make any special requests for your child’s team, 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. Please make these requests under the “Special Conditions” section when you are registering.
  • Requests to be with friends: will only be honored if the request is recipricol and any higher levels must ski/ride at the lowest level child in group.

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

Lunch is provided and a menu is sent out at the beginning of the season. Participants who are either unable to eat the lunch being served due to allergies or if a child is a picky eater, will need to bring their own lunch. We are unable to accommodate additional options. We ask that lunches are 100% disposable and do not include any nut or nut based products.

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.
