Kids Ski & Snowboard Lessons

All Programs Available: December 12, 2015 - March 27, 2016 (weather permitting)

Get your young ones off to a great start by enrolling them in a ski or snowboard lesson. Our youth instructors have been chosen specifically for their ability to teach and nurture children of all ages. Lessons take place at Totem Park, where your child will ski on two acres of groomed slopes, using innovative teaching aids that enhance their learning experience. Everyone has a blast riding our two Wonder Carpets™ Surface Lifts, which gently and effortlessly transport skiers and snowboarders uphill. Enjoy a comfortable ride to the top and find plenty of room to practice and explore in this designated "beginners only" terrain area. Novice skiers and riders are welcome in Totem Park even when not enrolled in lessons.
