This season we will again offer Riders and Sliders for 2.5 - 3 year olds. The main focus of this program is to allow kids to have a positive and fun first experience on skis as well as help the ones that already ski make the next step to be ready for Riders and Sliders next year.

Everybody will start in the childcare room where we get organized and then head outside in small groups together with our specifically trained kids instructors.  Children will be divided into different groups from “first time on skis” to kids that can already link turns.
