Kids Programs – 7 & Under

Kids Lessons & Programs

Here at Apex, we love kids, and we want make sure they have a great time on the hill. That’s why we’ve created Rippin Rascals kids lessons & programs for children between the age of 18 months – 5 years. It’s their own special place where they can learn from our professionally trained staff who specialize in teaching children in a fun and safe environment.

If they need a lesson, daycare, or a combination, we can do it! Come to Rippin’ Rascals Corner, located next to the Longshot Cafeteria, or send us a message at:
*Discounted rates available for lesson and daycare combinations as are all packages for lift/lesson/rentals.

Adopt an Instructor – (3 to 7 years old)

Own your Instructor for the Season!! Our Children Specialist will create a memorable on snow experience with your child. We recognize kids this age don’t always have the attention span or energy for a 2 hour lesson so we take the little guys for a 1 hour private lesson. This ensures your tyke will learn everything the bigger kids learn, but at their own pace. They will have tonnes of fun learning and won’t be too worn out afterward to go for a slide with mom or dad.

One-Hour Lesson $65  
Package of 3 One-Hour Lesson $166 *NEW this SEASON*
Package of 5 One-Hour Lesson $260  
Package of 8 One-Hour Lesson $390  

Ripping Rascals Semi Private Lessons – (3 to 7 years old)

This new program is tailored for children that are skiing on their own without any physical assistance besides loading the lift and occasionally needing a rescue from deep snow. This program targets Groms who have been in our Adopt an Instructor or Groms that Rip program before and are ready for a little more of a challenge. This unbeatable experience will have you kid shredding with a smile on his/her face! Increase the time, increase the terrain and have them learn to ride the mountain with a respected friend/guardian!

*The 1:2 Instructor to Student Ratio allows for instructors to ride all lifts and encourage terrain exploration while maintaining close contact with with their little rippers!
