Class Overview
The Ski and Board School curriculum is designed to take kids to the next level. Learning to ski and snowboard can be a difficult process. Even after a few lessons, further practice is required to maintain and strengthen skills and long-term interest. Shredder makes practice and repetition possible year-round, enabling kids to gain more confidence, progress faster on the mountain, and maximize their time with their families.
Our professionally developed Ski and Board School curriculum focuses more on the technical aspects of skiing and riding, since they are more independent and have more knowledge of the mountain.
In addition to learning the technical aspects of skiing and riding,  Shredders learn about mountain safety, practice simulating getting on and off a chairlift, and much more.
Boot Warm Up
Shredders learn to walk, balance and get comfortable moving with boots on. In addition to improving balance, boot warm-ups reinforces better habits on the slopes.
Skill Drills
Shredders will be introduced to the core fundamentals of skiing and snowboarding both on the ground and the different sized slopes.  Each Shredder will progress at their own rate.  Depending on ability, kids will be introduced and/or perform specific balance, edging, pressure and rotary skill drills.
