Monarch Butterflies Seasonal Program

The Monarch Butterflies program is designed for skiers (no snowboarders) ages 5 and 6, and an accompanying parent, and for ability level of the child from no experience to some experience. The accompanying parent should be comfortable on skis and able to load/unload the chairlift.

A parent will need to attend and participate each day of the session. Instructors will work with kids in small groups to explore and have fun with the sport of skiing/snowboarding. This program is unique in that it facilitates both kids and parents having a playful time on the mountain together. Parents will be able to ride the lift with their kids, allowing the class to explore more of the mountain. In addition to focusing and developing the child's skills, the instructor will coach parents in terrain selection, lift procedures and successful facilitation of their child's skiing and riding experience. Each child will be issued a Monarch Season Pass.

If your child does not yet have a season pass, you will be given, in addition to the registration form, the Season Pass forms to have a pass issued for your child.
Child and parent are to meet Monarch staff outside at the Yellow Butterfly in the Ski School Meeting Area, north of the Rental & Lesson Center.

Participants must be dressed and ready to go upon arrival, to include having had lunch and using the restroom.
Lessons end at 3:15pm.

We want our programs to be fun, with reasonable expectations. We will do our best to meet the individual needs of each participant and group them in the appropriate classes based on ability. If at any time you have any questions or concerns about what is happening please do not hesitate to communicate with the Program Coordinator directly or at This email address is being protected from spambots.

What to wear

The participant should wear warm layers of clothing under a waterproof jacket and pants. Warm waterproof mittens or glove, a warm hat and one pair of warm socks is recommended. Wool or synthetic clothing is preferable to cotton garments as cotton absorbs water and does not hold body heat. Eye protection is a must. Goggles and a helmet are also strongly recommended.

If renting, please allow extra time before the start of each class to pick up and size your equipment.
