Caterpillars is an introduction to skiing based on the developmental stage of 3 & 4 year olds, in small groups. The groups will have fun, with instructor guidance and direction, while playing with and experiencing the sport of skiing. They'll get to play a lot of games that help them to practice moving and sliding, taking rest and bathroom breaks as needed.

Some class time may occur inside due to weather or other considerations, at which times the instructor will continue to facilitate your child's comfort with the equipment, and muscle memory training through movements indoors.

The Butterflies program is designed for skiers and boarders ages 5 & 6 and an accompanying parent. A parent will need to attend and participate each day of the session. Instructors will work with kids and parents in small groups.

This program is unique in that it facilitates both kids and parents enjoying 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.
