Cross-Country Skiing Instruction for Kids

A kids ski class plays in the tracks. What better way to keep children interested in learning than through fun and games? Therefore, our approach to teaching children to ski is based on just that — games that make learning to ski a whole lot of fun.
Our selection of classes is taught by instructors who love skiing and who love teaching children. Kids' lessons are open to children ages 6 to 10 — older kids (ages 11 and up) take our adult lessons and pay discounted rates.
In addition to the group lessons below, we also offer Private Lessons for Kids.
If you are looking for a season-long program of instruction, consider the Bill Koch Youth Ski League.
