Ski Lessons
When teaching skiing, we follow the CSIA Skier Progression—a practical program of instruction designed to allow students to get the most out of their skiing at the earliest opportunity.  Instruction is overseen by our Snow School Directors Susan Chalmers and Dana Dafoe. Susan and Dana ensure that all of our instruction follows the CSIA methods and trains our instructors in instructing others and to improve their own skiing. Our instructors are encouraged to become CSIA certified.

Snowboard Lessons
Our snowboard program follows the CASI STEP program, a graded approach that allows students to quickly develop basic skills before progressively introducing more challenging activities. All instruction is delivered ensuring that at all times the students are boarding within their limits. Our instruction is overseen by Head Snowboard Connor Wein.
