MINI-RADICALS (ages 3 to 4):
The Mini-Radicals program will allow children to experience the joy of skiing. This winter experience will consist of fully-supervised, indoor and outdoor activities. The lessons will include games and activities to familiarize your children with their skiing equipment and to introduce them to some basic skills of skiing. All program activities take place in our children's teaching area. Children who are able to stop and turn may move into our Radicals program providing they have the energy and skill to ski with older children without individual attention. Children must be potty trained to participate in this program.
