Mountain Adventures

Whether they're new to snow sports or already exploring the whole mountain, kids and teens in the Mountain Adventures program will improve through fun and adventure guided by one of our professional instructors. At Ski Sundown, we group children by similar age and skill level and limit class sizes. They'll learn new skills, make new friends, and explore the mountain for 2 ½ hours each day. Our varied terrain provides challenges, builds confidence, and is sure to create a love for a sport that will last a lifetime! 



NEW THIS SEASON:  Mountain Adventures INTRO TO TERRAIN PARK!!  Guided by certified freestyle instructors, this 5 week lesson program will teach park safety, park etiquette, and ATML techniques (Approach, Take-off, Maneuver, Landing).  Students begin their journey in the new Little Joe terrain park in our Sunnyside Learning Area, are introduced to "Smart Style" safety procedures specific to terrain park activities, and to basic skills on beginner features.  Upon building confidence and skills, students then progress to the first of a series of two terrain parks on the Tom's Treat trail.  Here they will continue to develop new skills and bag of tricks at their own pace on graduated terrain available at two locations on this trail.  For those students who demonstrate the ability and confidence to take their skills to another level, they will be introduced to more advanced features in the terrain park on the Stinger trail.  The goal of this program is to develop a safe and confident freestyle enthusiast!
