The Mommy/Daddy & Me Ski Program is for ages 4 – 6 including one parent or guardian. Choose the same start time for 4 consecutive Fridays or Sundays in January or February. Lessons are 1-hour in length.

Parent/guardian must already be a proficient skier. Child can start at any level. Parent/guardian will assist the instructor by getting their child back on their feet after a fall, helping them get up the rope tow/Poma and noticing when it’s time for a snack/bathroom break.

For the adult, the major benefit of this program is to absorb the instructional language and techniques to support your child on the slopes long after the program is complete, and you might just pick a tip of two to improve your own skiing.

$250/1 child + 1 adult

Lift tickets are free for ages 6 and under. Parent/Guardian will receive a free rope-tow ticket or will be able to purchase a Poma/Chair ticket at a 50% on lesson days when the child is using advanced lifts. Equipment rental is not included in the lesson fee.
