Learning to ski or snowboard means more than just getting into a new sport. It means exploring the outdoors, gaining confidence, and developing skills that follow you through the rest of your life. Through daily Youth Group Lessons, your child will be placed in a group of like-aged and skilled snowboarders or skiers. They will work on building the foundations for beginners or pushing their riding to the next level for those with more experience. Reserve a Private Lesson to get more one-on-one instruction to really hone in on skills throughout your lesson while exploring the slopes of Crystal Mountain Resort.
