Come to Rippin’ Rascals Corner, located next to the

Adopt an Instructor  (3 to 5 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.
