Ski/Ride & Play
This new program for 2019-2020 is designed to introduce little ones aged 3 or 4 years old to skiing and riding in a fun & playful environment. The Ski/Ride & Play program offers small ratios in a positive group setting to help build their self-confidence. Children learn about equipment and the sport through exploration and play. We always take into account children’s limited attention spans and endurance capabilities at this age so when little minds start to wander we keep them interested with on snow games and activities that still are developing skiing/riding skills. Instructors always finish the lessons on a positive note and while they are still interested!
