Kids Programs

Remember when you learned to ski or ride?  Did your parents have you on snow as soon as you could walk or did you pick it up later in life?  Now with kids of your own, you’re looking for the best way to introduce them to the sport you love.  Kids Camp packages allow you to spend the day cruising the mountain or taking a lesson of your own while the kids learn to ski or snowboard in a safe and fun environment.
