    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. 

    Also, after another year of evaluating the ratios in the Mini Cruisers program the student/instructor ratio will continue to be a 2:1.  We are also excited to announce that we will have an all-day Mini Cruisers program on Wednesdays. This program will start at 10:00am and finish at 3:00pm with lunch included. We will still continue the AM and PM choice available on Wednesday’s. Another change and addition for this winter will be that the Teen Program will be an all-day program offered on Saturdays this season. Cruisers will continue to be a 13-week program.

The groups will be split up based on where the kids want to ski or ride. This program does not include lunch and sack lunch is highly recommended. There are no makeup days or refunds on this program, please plan accordingly.

    NEW THIS SEASON!!!


    Mini Cruisers All- Day Wednesday Program: 

    8 Week Program:  $ 640 ages 3 to 5

    January 10th--March 7th – Offered Wednesdays ONLY!!!

    Wednesdays: January 7,14,21,28      February 4, 11, 18, 25

    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 five hour lesson for two children with one instructor offered every Wednesday from 10:00am to 3:00pm 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.

    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. Rental Link

    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. There are no makeup days or refunds on this program, please plan accordingly.
