Your kids want to have fun! More than just children's lessons, our Mountain Camp programs are designed with fun in mind. Whether they're just beginning or already tearing it up all over the mountain, they'll laugh their way through a great day of learning and discovery. Our instructors group kids of similar ability before hitting the mountain for a day of fun-filled learning. This program offers full day and half day sessions.
