Bunny Rabbits

Chipmunks (Age 4)

Program Details
This non-competitive group was developed for children interested in learning how to ski.

The children are introduced to basic ski techniques. Chipmunks provides an “Active Start’ experience (see Nordiq Canada LTAD). Throughout the season, children will participate in games which enhance various attributes needed to ski well with on-snow drills and activities, and lots of skiing! The object is to learn while having fun.

Our basic belief is T.E.A.M. (Together Everyone Achieves More). We start and finish our practices together, so everyone needs to be ready to be active when practice starts.
