This program is for young skiers age 4-8 years old and takes place on four Sundays in January. The program meets at Mountain Dell Golf Course in Parleys Canyon. Sessions are scheduled from 1:00-2:30 p.m. with the exception of the first session when parents and children are asked to arrive by 12:30 p.m. so they can find their class and meet their instructors.
Each session consists of ski games and activities (relay races, treasure hunts, obstacle courses) that introduce children to skiing and basic ski techniques, with an emphasis on FUN and lots of parent participation.
Because of the very young age of participants, parents are asked to stay with their children during the session to help out.
