Class Overview

Learning to ski and snowboard can be a difficult process. Even after a few lessons, further practiced is required to strengthen skills and to maintain long-term interest. Our classes are designed to introduce and strengthen skiing and snowboarding fundamentals for children of all ability levels. 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 Little Shredder curriculum is play-based.  Kids learn by moving with their gear on in a fun and safe environment.  In addition to learning the technical aspects of skiing and riding, Little Shredders learn about mountain safety, practice simulating getting on and off a chairlift, and much more.

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.

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.
