FAQ
Why only 4th graders?

Fourth grade is the perfect age to learn to ski and snowboard.  This program is tailored for the new and beginner skier and
snowboarder.  They have the coordination skills and muscle development to be able to pick up on the skills as well as adhering and following safety information. One age had to be chosen and 4th grade was the decision.
We are excited that we are able to offer this program to all 4th graders.
