Kids Programs & Lessons – Ski & Snowboard – Ages 7 & Under

Improve Your Skills with a Friendly Pro

The best way to for kids to enjoy their time on the slopes is to ensure that both their skills are sharp and their equipment is well-suited and comfortable. At the Apex Resort Snow School, kids are taught to ski responsibly and with safety in mind. The Rippin’ Rascals Kid’s Program offers a full spectrum of lessons tailored for children between the age of 18 months to 5 years. It’s their own special place where they can learn from the certified Apex staff who specialize in teaching children in a fun and safe environment.

Whether children need a lesson, childminding, or a combination of the two, the Apex Snow School can provide it! Visit the Rippin’ Rascals Corner at Apex Resort, located next to the Longshot Cafeteria.

*Discounted rates available for Lesson and Daycare combinations, as are all packages for Lift/Lesson/Rentals.

Adopt-an-Instructor Program– (For 3 to 7 years old)

At this age, children don’t always have the energy for a 2-Hour lesson. Focussing for this length of time can be difficult for them as well. Instead, the Adopt-an-Instructor Program provides children with 1-Hour private lessons. This ensures that your child will learn everything the bigger kids learn, but at their own pace.

Our certified Child Ski Instructors will make sure your child has tons of fun learning the right technique. After the one hour lesson, little skiers often have enough energy to go for a slide with Mom or Dad.

One-Hour Lesson $76
Package of 3 One-Hour Lesson $194
Package of 5 One-Hour Lesson $304
Package of 8 One-Hour Lesson $456

Unaccompanied minors needing rental equipment will be require parent/guardian signatures in order to access use of rental equipment. Please contact Snow School for further information.
