    Mini Mites is where it all starts and fun is just the beginning! Mini Mites is absolutely jam packed with fun events, themes and activities. Your kids will get comfortable fast as they have the same instructor and class mates every week, they will develop lifelong skills and lasting friendships. The Mini Mites program includes hot lunch and snacks, lift priority and small class ratio!

    We want your kids to have the best experience, so, we select our specially trained coaches based on their passion for working with kids, their patience and their ability to make learning fun! Once your child is assigned to a coach based on their skiing ability, they’ll meet new friends and kick things off! Don’t worry, if they progress quickly, we will make sure they are swapped to the right group. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask your childs coach throughout the program. 

    Towards the end of the Mini Mite season, there will be a fun entry-level level race for the kids to participate in. More info on special events will be provided as the season progresses.
