SSU Programs will be available to book in early December.

SSU programs are available December 8, 2023 - March 31, 2024
Snow Sport University

We are the only resort with specially designed kid-friendly programs that divide age groups by small increments, based on the learning capacity and developmental stages of children — with fun at the heart of every program. Our all-day children's programs for ages 3-15 use Flaik GPS as a way to capture on-mountain fun by tracking miles, vertical feet, and trails skied each day.

Whether you're new to snow sports or ready to explore more challenging terrain, Snow Sport University's experienced guides will help you develop the skills and confidence to meet your goals. Our SSU staff personally makes sure your entire family, from toddlers to adults, beginners to experts, has the best possible on-mountain experience and end each session with more skill and knowledge as they progress throughout the week.
