Ages 4 - 7 / Levels 1, 2, 3

Whether it is their first time snowboarding or something they already love to do, let us pass on our passion and excitement for snowboarding! The Mini Sliders program is catered to our tiniest winter enthusiasts. Our certified instructor delivered child-centered lessons to engage them in snowboarding and forget that they are learning.

Mini Slider lessons are 60 minutes long, include hill access for your lesson time, and are offered at 1 instructor per 3 participants (1:3 ratio). All levels may be repeated multiple times to help build a solid foundation and allow your child to develop their skills at their own pace in a safe learning environment.
