Together with Flaik GPS technology, Smugglers' is offering all students in its Snow Sport University all-day ski and snowboard programs (ages 3-15) a way to capture their on-mountain fun. When they enroll in an SSU program, the kids will be outfitted with Flaik GPS units that will track the miles, vertical feet and trails skied each day — and cumulatively over the course of your stay. Après ski, kids can log-on to review the data with friends and family to share their total on-mountain experience and plan exciting adventures for the next day.

Day-use of Flaik GPS is included in our all-day children's ski or snowboard programs.
