This 7-session snowboarding and skiing program, led by some of the best instructors at the Resort, will focus on skill development, fun and further inspiring each youth’s passion for snowsports and the mountains.
ATP is open to children and teens, ages 8 to 17 (6 & 7 with verified exceptions), who are comfortable with all green terrain, riding chairlifts and are starting to explore blue slopes and beyond. **Experience with Blue to Black terrain is not required, but your Pioneer must, at a minimum, be independent on all Green terrain, confident riding the chairlift and able to snowboard or ski all day.

80% all-mountain skills focus – steeper terrain, bumps, trees, NASTAR, carving, mountain etiquette, and more
20% focus on introductory freestyle elements – first jibs/airs/grabs and terrain park safety
Specific scheduled class content guarantees progression throughout the winter
Your child will develop as an independent snow slider, build skills for the entire mountain, and make new friends
