Ski Lessons for Kids

Our Alpine Valley Kids Academy instructors are specifically trained in ski lessons for a younger audience. We offer a wide range of various lessons ranging from beginner to various advanced levels in racing, freestyle, and beyond. Our approach uses positive, skill-based coaching, small group sizes, and mountains of fun to provide your child with the optimal snow sport experience.

The Alpine Valley Kids Academy offers two exciting programs for teaching children to ski and snowboard-- Mogul Mites (ages 5-7) and SnowSquad (ages 7-14). 

Each program includes a six-week lesson plan taught by experienced and caring coaches. Our fun-filled, creative approach to exploring, sliding and riding keeps children interested as they learn and can’t wait to return for the next adventure!


Mogul Mites Program (Age 5-7) 

Mogul Mites is a ski school for kids to explore the mountain on a quest for extraordinary thrills and excitement! Specifically designed to keep young adventurers interested and engaged in skiing, while teaching them proper techniques, skills and safe practices on the slopes.

Each week, Mogul Mites skiers are introduced to new ability challenges through on-slope games and technique-shaping activities. Our small group format provides the right setting for Kids Academy coaches to develop and enhance your child’s skiing skills. 


 Mogul Mites Includes:

·         LESSONS: (6) 2 hour ski lessons each week.

Lessons are held at Alpine Valley according to the schedule below. The child must take his or her lesson at the same time and resort for the entire six weeks. Supervision is not provided before or after the lessons. Make-up lessons are not available if a student is absent from a regularly scheduled class. However, if Alpine Valley must cancel, a make-up lesson will be scheduled.

·         EXTRA SLOPE TIME: During lesson weeks AND after the program is complete.

After any lesson, and before any lesson except the first, Mogul Mites can enjoy some additional skiing time. Supervision is not provided before or after the lessons. Also, after the six weeks of lessons are complete, children who participate are welcome to visit Alpine Valley on their scheduled day only, as long as they wear their assigned neck tag, for the remainder of the season at no additional cost.

·         FREE PARENT SKIING: On the last day, parents can ski with their children for free!

Mogul Mites isn't just ski school for kids. The parents can come along on the last day so the kids can show off what they have learned. We provide the parents with Snow Passes and rentals, if needed.

 Snow Squad Program (Age 7-14)

The Snow Squad Program is for kids who know the basics of skiing and are ready to start polishing and developing more advanced skills. Designed for kids 7-14 years old, this program teaches them what they want to learn. Lessons range from mastering the mountain, ruling the race course, and even taking on the terrain park. Snow Squad Members expand their abilities under the guidance of our trained and experienced Instructors, Coaches, and Special Guest Pros. All riders are welcome to join, regardless of riding ability. We customize each lesson to help kids accomplish what they want to learn on the slopes and teach them how to do it safely.
