Ski & Snowboard Programs, Lessons & Fun Activities

Adventure Rangers - Inspired learning for ages 7-10


Available December 8, 2017 - April 8, 2018

Adventure Rangers group lessons for skiers and snowboarders help kids develop the confidence to explore the mountain, be smart on the slopes, and have fun. The all-day program includes lessons, guided on-slope treks, lunch, and supervised afternoon activities. You may even want to consider the benefit of a private lesson.

Flaik GPS units are included in all-day ski and snowboard camp programs for tracking vertical, mileage and speed! Also, beginning snowboarders will be set up with Burton Learn to Ride equipment. They'll enjoy the best possible introductory experience by combining this specially designed equipment with the teaching expertise of Smugglers' SSU professionals.
