Detail about family & special needs inclusive ski & board program 

Mountain Mentor:

Our team of Mountain Mentors are experienced ski and snowboarders who have a background in special education and have trained with me. 

Types of Sessions: 

During a 2 hour session, kids will ski for an hour, come inside for a warming break and snack and return to the mountain for approximately 40 minutes. 

 

During a 3 hours session, kids will ski/ board for 1 hour and 15 minutes, then come into the lodge for a lunch break (no more than 30 minutes). After Lunch the remainder of the session will be skiing/snowboarding. 

Groups: 

Lessons are taught in a 2:1 or a 1:1 setting. We believe that the more direct instruction given in each session, the quicker the skill acquisition. 

See FAQ for more information.
