Kids Group Lessons

Kids Group Lessons

Inside the beginner learning areas your children ages 4-12 will be introduced to the sensation of skiing or snowboarding right away, utilizing specially designed snow features to control their speed while they focus on moving, playing and having fun. They’ll be enjoying their favorite (or soon-to-be favorite) winter activity and making new snow friends in a fun, safe environment.

All skill levels are welcome for kids group lessons and your snow slider will be matched with other children accordingly. Purgatory Ski & Snowboard School includes Children’s Specialist Instructors who will help improve your child’s skills, whether it’s their first or 50th on-snow experience.

Booking lessons at least 48 hours in advance is highly recommended.

flaik System

What is flaik? flaik is a GPS-based alpine guest tracking system. Children enrolled in lift-served lessons will be equipped with a lightweight locator.

The Ski & Snowboard School staff uses this technology to track their students’ progress. Images are captured multiple times per second, allowing detailed analysis of location and turn shape. Parents and children can review and re-live the day at the end of the lesson.

This system ensures increased safety and peace of mind for both parents and instructors.
