This 10-week program for 5 to 17 year-olds promotes the development of all mountain skiing and riding by combining elements of freestyle, race and general improvement strategies for your child in a fun, non-competitive environment. Every Sunday your child will be grouped with the same instructor to allow for awesome skill progression and tons of fun. Children are grouped by ability level (Discover (first time skiers and boarders) novice, intermediate or advanced) Lunch is supervised or can be purchased as an option along with rentals and tickets. Parents are encouraged to ski and ride with their kids at the end of the day from 3:00 – 3:30 to get acquainted with their coach and to monitor their child’s progress. Students receive progress report cards to monitor their progress and so parents are aware of ability levels for future programs.
We are introducing a new wave of the FRC. This program is for our kids aged 11 and up who like to ski and snowboard the gnarliest terrain Mount Washington has to offer. If you enjoy skiing and snowboarding in the Basin and the backside of the Boomerang then this new program is for you! This is for students already at level 5 and who want to challenge themselves technically and physically. Expect to spend most of your time shredding down our steeps, in the deeps, and tricking out the park. Don’t forget to bring your snorkel and your Go Pro!!!PURCHASE ONLINE >>
