Child Ski and Snowboard
Learn a sport, get a lifetime of adventure
Lessons, Camps and Programs
Ages 6 and under
Baldy Mountain Resort offers great ski and snowboard lessons, camps, and program options for children. Our Children’s packages are aimed at giving our youngest skiers and snowboarders the best instruction in a fun and safe environment, so that you can go and explore our mountain with peace of mind. Our variety of kid-approved terrain makes Baldy Mt a great place for young children to learn to ski and snowboard.
If you want your child to experience skiing or snowboarding for the first time, our Children’s Discover Package is fun and affordable. Discover is essentially FREE! (Well, almost). The package includes a ski or snowboard lesson, equipment rental and lift pass for less than it would cost to purchase these individually.
For children who have been skiing or riding once or twice, our Snow Pros will help them to take their skills to the next level. Lesson includes full equipment rental, full day lift ticket and lesson.
Some children might benefit from a private lesson, or perhaps a semi-private lesson with other family members (aka mom,dad, brother or sister). Our private ski and snowboard lessons will help them become more confident in their abilities or get them started on the slopes.
Enjoy a Christmas you’ll never forget, on snow here at Baldy Mountain Resort! Our three day camps offer the opportunity to learn to ski or snowboard (the ultimate Christmas sport!) in a short period, all while exploring a winter wonderland.
Our 10 week Ski and Snowboard for Fun program runs January to March and aims to get children aged 5-13 enjoying the mountain and developing their skills with consistent weekly instruction. They’ll have fun, make new friends and really enjoy skiing with our Snow Pros. Lessons take place on either a Saturday or Sunday, you can choose which day in advance, and additional weekend lessons can be purchased.
Baldy Mt offers access to a dedicated weekend Race Club Race Camp for children aged 5 and up who want to improve their technical racing abilities. From January – March 2018, over successive weekends, participants will hone their race skills with detailed training from dedicated race instructors. They’ll focus on their technique and take part in fun competitions with one another, having a fun time and building great team spirit.
A Baldy Mt Child Lesson is the perfect way for our youngest skiers and snowboarders to be introduced to the sport or to develop their skills. Aimed at ages 6 and under, we offer private lessons, semi-private lessons and group lessons, which are matched to skill level and age. Our dedicated Snow Pro team will give children the professional instruction and confidence they need to master the mountain.
A Baldy Mt Child Program is a specialized multi-day ski or snowboard program aimed at developing the skills of young snow sports enthusiasts. For children aged 5 and over we offer an Alpine Race Program aimed at taking young racers to the next level.
Baldy Camps are three day events aimed at quickly improving the ability of beginners. Our Child Camps cater to guests aged 6 and under and are held over the Christmas period and in March. They provide intensive, fun instruction and aim to improve participants’ riding and skiing abilities. Full rental equipment is supplied. Some degree of athletic ability is required.
When you choose a lesson, program or camp you are given the option to choose whether your child skis or snowboards. Children learn quickly, and while skiing is an easier sport to learn initially, it takes decades to perfect the art of skiing. Snowboarding is more difficult to acquire the skills needed but the learning curve after this is less steep. Some children may become better snowboarders faster than skilled skiers. It is possible for children to learn to ski or snowboard in a one or two hour lesson.
We think that learning to ski and snowboard is an awesome thing to do, and your son or daughter will have a blast with our instructors. They’ll take them through the basics of the sport and get them out on the mountain in no time. Safety and enjoyment is our number one priority. Booking a beginner lesson with us ensures you and your family will have the best possible time at Baldy Mountain Resort.
