    Mini Mites is where it all starts and fun is just the beginning! It’s 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 measurable results and lasting friendships. “Mini’s” 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 and their patience and personality with making learning fun! Once your child is assigned to a coach based on their skiing ability, they’ll meet new friends and kick off the fun! 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 kids coach!

    Towards the end of the Mini Mite season, there will be a fun and encouraging entry-level level race for the kids to participate in. We also have a party at the end of the season! More info will be provided as the season progresses.
