Junior Seasonal Programs
Enrolling in a Program
About Our Programs
We offer instruction for fifteen weekends including some days during the Christmas holiday week and February vacation week. Programs are designed for kids 4 thru 16 years old, who already ski or snowboard, starting at the lower intermediate level. We offer different programs geared toward certain age groups and within those groups, we might have different groups based on skill development and intensity level. Kids meet at the Junior Seasonal building by the Lower Meadows chairlift.
Parents must fill out program specific forms including a Release of Liability on or before their first day of the program. Parents must supply or take children for lunch. We reserve the right to combine groups when needed.
