Mini Mountaineers

The Mini Mountaineers program is for athletes ages 10 - 12.  Please contact us about your child's age if you are on the fence about this program. 
This program is open to 5 athletes and will have two coaches / guides attending the touring days and 1-2 coaches on the Snow King sessions.  Athletes must be proficient downhill skiers and able to ski variable off piste conditions.  This is a great program for first time backcountry skiers.  We will cover avalanche topics, touring techniques, team building, all while building great uphill fitness.
