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.
  • Children are required to wear a mask.
