Class Overview

The Ski and Board School curriculum is designed to take kids to the next level. Learning to ski and snowboard can be a difficult process. Even after a few lessons, further practice is required to strengthen skills and to maintain long-term interest. Shredder makes practice and repetition possible year-round, enabling kids to gain more confidence, progress faster on the mountain, and maximize their time with their families.

Our professionally developed Ski and Board School curriculum focuses more on the technical aspects of skiing and riding, since these kids are typically more independent and have more knowledge of the mountain.

In addition to learning the technical aspects of skiing and riding,  Shredders learn about mountain safety, practice simulating getting on and off a chairlift, and much more.

Boot Warm-Up & Skill Drills

Kids learn to walk, balance, and get comfortable with boots on. In addition to improving balance, boot warm-ups reinforces better habits on the slopes. Ski & Board School participants will additionally work on athletic development and coordination while in the gear.

Kids will be introduced to the core fundamentals of skiing and snowboarding both on the ground and on the different sized slopes.  Each Little Shredder will progress at their own rate.  Depending on ability, kids will be introduced to and/or perform specific balance, edging, pressure, and rotary skill drills.
