Winter Adventure
Ages: 11-14

Program 

This program is designed for skiers 11-14 years and would like to continue skiing in a fun, non-competitive environment. Skiers will continue to develop their abilities in both classic and skate technique. This development will be encouraged through games, drills, and lots of skiing! While the primary focus of the program is skiing, other activities can include snowshoeing, outdoor winter education, shelter building and any other fun that can be had in the snow!
