If you want your children to have a more in-depth experience than the beginner group lesson will offer, our Explorer Program, Mountaineer Program, or Winter Adventure Camp are the perfect solution! Please use this page to help determine the best type of program to meet your children's needs.
Youth Program Options
Our Explorers Lesson Program is for children of all abilities, ages 4 to 12. Our Explorer Instructors love working with kids and know how to make learning FUN while keeping children safe. For the safety of our guests, only children are allowed in the Explorers area. Here, they will walk across our colorful boot bridge to get fitted properly and play with balance boards, slacklines, and other items before going out on the snow. Parents receive a security ticket they will need to show to pick up their child, and they are welcome to watch the lesson from our designated area outside. We offer a second Explorer lesson option on the same day if your child wants more time on the snow, and they may leave their equipment in the Explorer area while you take your child for a break or lunch.
