Ski & Snowboard Improvement Package

If you want to get a jump on the season, then sign up for our ski improvement camp to get helpful feedback from our best instructors. Kick off your winter season with three days of skiing or riding, fun on the slopes, and shared time with like-minded people. 

These Camps are a new program for the Ski & Board School. Our focus is to build your confidence, have some fun, and offer some take-aways that you can work on for the season. The Camps are an excellent way to regain your snow legs, improve your skills, master your balance, and learn how to make your equipment work for you. We are together from Monday to Wednesday, mid-week, when the skiing and riding are at their best, enjoying wide-open slopes with untouched snow and corduroy.

The Camps are suitable for skiers/riders Level 4 (Greens/Blues) or higher. Choose from 2 program start dates, each with three days of five-hour lessons delivered by a Level 3 or 4 CSIA/CASI instructor. Camps include lunches for all three days, plus one dinner. Come for the skiing/riding and leave with new friends.
