We provide a fun, safe, and supportive environment where students can reach their full potential. Our team of Children’s Program Supervisors hand picks instructors who are trained specifically in techniques for teaching children how to ski/ride and instill a love for the sport. Our team focuses on developing skills and fundamentals while building confidence in each student.

    Lessons are offered daily in a camp setting, beginning at 9:45 am and ending at 3:00 pm. The day includes four hours of on-snow instruction along with supervised breaks and lunch. We conduct camps on both Dollar Mountain and at Bald Mountain depending on the child's age and ability.

    Not Sure Which Camp Is Right For your Child?

    We want your child to have the best experience possible. If you're not sure if your child is intermediate, please start your child at Dollar for a more enjoyable first lesson back on the snow. Your child can advance to Bald Mountain when ready. In your child's best interest; we will move your child to the program and location best suited to his or her needs. Please note that the minimum age requirements are strictly observed for safety reasons.
