CAT Trackers Ski & Snowboard Program

Fun is the heart of our kids program, it is designed to introduce our young guests ages 4-12 to skiing and snowboarding in small increments based on the learning capacity and developmental stages of children.

Our focus is to help your child develop the skills and confidence to navigate the mountain at his or her own pace. Our program goal is to have your child become comfortable with their equipment, learn to be safe and smart on the slopes, and have fun. During your child’s time with us our instructors will introduce your child to skiing or snowboarding, help hone their skills if they are ready, guide them in fun races and interactive indoor and outdoor activities.
