    Teen, Cruiser & Mini Cruiser Program

    One very important goal in the Ski and Ride school is to continue to support an educational pipeline to better suit the needs of all children and growing athletes in the valley. The goals of the Cruisers and Mini Cruisers programs are to introduce children to the sport of skiing or snowboarding and to teach fundamental skills needed to navigate our mountain in a safe yet fun group environment. We continue to work closely with the Mountain Sports Team in order to have programs that fit all children’s needs.  

    One addition for this winter will be a new Teen Program offered on Sundays this season. Also, after a year of evaluating the ratios in the Mini Cruisers program the student/instructor ratio will be 2:1.  Cruisers have also moved to a 13-week program.

    The Cruiser Camp program focuses on improving each child's skiing or snowboarding skills while providing a safe and fun learning environment. The teaching objectives for Cruiser Camp include teaching fundamental skills and on-hill etiquette at all levels. Cruiser Camp promotes an environment of confident skiing and riding by teaching in terrain appropriate for the abilities of the group.

    Children are therefore grouped together according to their ability levels, ages and motivations, and will explore the mountain based on the skills of the group. Each group will remain with their assigned instructor for the length of the program providing a stable environment and core peer group. This program does not include lunch and sack lunch is highly recommended.

    We have limited kids’ seasonal rentals available at the Crested Butte Rental and Demo Center located in the Treasury Building. Our seasonal rental package is $99.00 with a credit card deposit.

    Join us Saturdays for 13 weeks from 10:00am-3:00pm at the Kid’s Ski and Ride School.

    The Mini Cruiser program is a ski program designed for children 3-5 years old who want to be introduced to the winter sport and ski around with their buddy’s. The Mini Cruisers program is a two hour lesson for two children with one instructor offered every Wednesday or Saturday for 8 weeks. Having the same instructor and ski buddy offers stability and develops a child’s self-confidence.

    If your little one does not have a buddy to ski with, we will match them up with one other child of similar abilities and motivations upon seeing them ski the first week. This will be done in a safe environment with the Mini Cruiser Supervisor assigning instructors to each group according to ability and group chemistry.

    AM Lessons are from 10am to 12 pm. PM lessons are from 1 pm to 3pm
    Lift tickets are included with this program. Rentals are not included.

    We have limited kids’ seasonal rentals available at the Crested Butte Rental and Demo Center located in the Treasury Building. Our seasonal rental package is $99.00 with a credit card deposit.

The teens in this program will be skiing or riding with their friends. The groups will be split up based on where the kids want to ski. We will be running this program on Sundays from 1pm to 4pm.

    Join us Sundays for 11 weeks from 1:00pm-4:00pm at the Kid’s Ski and Ride School.
