Kids Group Lesson

Children learn differently from adults. At Ride and Smile, we make learning to ski or snowboard so enjoyable that they don’t even realize they’re in a class! To create a positive and stress-free learning environment, we don’t conduct exams or organize ski races among participants.

We keep our groups small to ensure our instructors can focus on each child’s individual needs and improvement.

Group lessons offer numerous advantages, allowing kids to develop not only their skiing or snowboarding skills but also important social skills. This makes skiing a lifelong school of valuable life lessons.
