KIDS LESSONS: Our Camp CB programming is a ton of fun, and led by instructors passionate and skilled about getting youth out on the mountain to progress their skills. For 3 year olds, the cubs program offers a 1.5 – 2 hour lesson plus tons of fun doing indoor activities to balance the day.  For ages 4 – 6, our Explorers is a fun day on the mountain for all ability levels who want to improve their skiing skills, and the Mini Riders is a silmar program for 4 – 6 year old snowboarders.  Then, our Challengers and Challenger Riders program is for all ability levels age 7-14 to progress their skiing or riding skills. Then, during peak seasons, our teen program for ages 15-17 is a ton of fun! We believe age group splits are important so children can learn in an environment with similar aged peers. View & Book Kids Lesson Programs

SKI WITH AN OLYMPIAN: Wendy Fisher, local Olympian and freeskiing expert is again hosting her Wednesday ski clinics at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.  You don’t have to ski like an Olympian to ski with and learn from one. Wendy will lead two separate learning options based upon ability level: One for intermediate and the other for advanced skiers.
