Youth Group Lessons

At Big Sky Resort, we strive to provide a quality learning experience in a safe and fun environment. Children are placed into groups according to the skills they demonstrate, from first timers to all mountain rippers. With an emphasis on technique, we strive to provide your child with solid skills that they will utilize throughout their skiing/snowboarding life. Please keep in mind that our instructors may decide to give the group a break, depending upon their needs. Be supportive and encouraging with your child in order for them to gain a true love and respect for the sport. All children learn at a different rate - and that's ok!

Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to lesson for registration or 1 hour prior if equipment rental is needed, allow for more time during peak season or for large groups. All children's group lessons meet on snow in our Kids Bowl.

Morning and Afternoon Activities: Whether you have a lesson yourself or want to get out on the slope a little earlier we have fun activities to keep your 4-6 year old engaged before and after their lesson. This product is $20 plus 3% tax, or complimentary to parents and guardians who are taking a lesson themselves or have an older child in group lessons.
