The goal of Jay Peak’s 8-Week Program is to provide a safe and fun environment in which young skiers and riders can have fun, learn and improve the skills that will allow them to be snow sports enthusiasts for life. Our Weekly Learning Themes center on topics including using ski/board edges, turn shape, balance, stance, and exploration of new terrain. Each week will feature a concentration on a new aspect of skiing/riding. Each class will provide a mixture of instruction, exploration, and free ski/ride time all under the supervision of our experienced instructors.

8 Week Lesson


With 8 weeks on the snow, young skiers and riders will develop more than just their riding skills. They'll create a lasting bond with the sport, their friends, and the mountain.
