NEW FOR 2015 Christmas Holiday: Winter Break Ski Camp!

Winter Break Ski Camp is for kids ready to explore more of the mountain! Once the groups are formed on the first day they will ski with the same coach for consistency during each session. Winter Break Ski Camp is a non-competitive option that will introduce your child to NASTAR racing, Terrain Park, and off-groomed freeriding, as appropriate to their skill level. Other activities like treasure hunts and patrol visits may also be mixed in. Get some buddies together or come meet some new friends on the mountain this winter break! 

There are two sessions available and each session includes four consecutive days of coaching and activities, NASTAR use and gear check. Winter Break Ski Camp is  recommended for kids who are skiing mostly parallel on easy blue runs and have advanced beyond green terrain most of the time.

Sessions are available December 21st -24th & December 28th – 31st

  • $175 (includes NASTAR and gear check)
