Kid's Local Programs

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, Mini Cruisers and Teen 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.

For Kids

Mini Cruisers Program
The Mini Cruiser program is a ski program designed for children 2 1/2-5 years old who want to be introduced to the winter sport and ski around with a buddy. The student to instructor ratio for this program is 2:1.  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.  Each pair will be assigned to one instructor for the duration of the program.  Having the same instructor and ski buddy offers stability and develops a child’s self-confidence.

New this season our Half Day Mini Cruiser program will be available to children beginning at 2 ½ years (based on their age as of December 31, 2015).  Children must be fully potty-trained to participate in the Mini Cruiser program.  The 2 ½ year old option is only available on Wednesdays.

Lift tickets are included with this program. Rentals are not included. Seasonal rentals are available at the Crested Butte Rental and Demo Center located in the Treasury Building. Our seasonal rental package is $125.00.

The Cruiser program focuses on improving each child's skiing or snowboarding skills while providing a safe and fun learning environment. The teaching objectives for the Cruiser program include teaching fundamental skills and on-hill etiquette at all levels. Cruisers 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.

Lift tickets and rentals are not included in this program. Seasonal rentals are available at the Crested Butte Rental and Demo Center located in the Treasury Building. Our seasonal rental package is $125.00.
