Kids Ski Lesson

Children's Center Programs

Gunstock is committed to teaching kids to ski and snowboard, and create a lifetime love of snowsports. Our Kids' Programs for ages 4-14 provide a safe and fun learning environment for little skiers and riders to develop their skills while making friends and enjoying the snowy outdoors.

What to Wear

  • Children must arrive to their ski or snowboard lessons dressed in appropriate clothing and outerwear for a day of skiing or riding. This includes warm socks, snow pants, jacket, gloves/mittens, hat, and warm layers. Hand warmers are always a plus on cold days!
  • If your child is not renting equipment, they must arrive fully dressed with ski or snowboard boots on.
What is Your Child's Ability Level?

Please refer to our Ability Chart to help us get a better understanding of your child's ability level. Knowing this information will also ensure that your child is skiing or riding with children of a similar level and learning effectively and efficiently.
