Children's Programs

Silver Kids 
Our Silver Kid's program allows your kids to improve their skills in a group atmosphere. Half Day Packages include a lift ticket, rental, and lesson from either 10:30-12 p.m. or 1-2:30 p.m daily. Full day packages include lift ticket, rental, lesson from 10:30-12 p.m. and 1-2:30 p.m., and lunch from 12-1 p.m and are available weekends only. Intermediate and advanced classes will need reservations of two or more students for Silver Kids Packages. Private lessons are available for single students.

Due to popular demand, we are bringing back our Prospectors program. Through this program, your little Prospector (age 6 yrs.) can take advantage of our Daycare as well as spend time with one of our Children's Specialist Instructors to receive the one-on-one time out on the snow that they need. Our Prospector's Program includes half or full day childcare with a 1 hour private lesson (bundled in with a lift ticket, rentals, lunch, and snacks). Prospectors is available on weekends but has limited availability, so be sure to reserve your spot now!
