Winter Programs: FUNdamentals Ski Program & Wednesday Night Town Challenge

FUNdamentals Ski Program
There is no ski program in North America like the FUNdamentals ski program. This skiing experience will provide kids with a multitude of skiing experiences in one package. Participants in this program will be exposed to all the ski disciplines: Cross country skiing, Nordic ski jumping, Free ride/ Freestyle skiing and Alpine skiing. The goal of the program is to enhance overall ski skills but more importantly provide an environment were youngsters are exposed to all of the ski sports and have FUN.

The program runs from January 5th to March 5th for a total of 16 sessions. Each ski discipline will have 4 sessions for the kids to experience that sport. The cost is $400.00 and that includes a season pass to the Canyons, instruction, cross country equipment and ski passes to White Pine and the UOP. All skiers must have their own helmet and alpine equipment. Skiers must be able to stop and turn easily on green circle terrain, ski in a wedge and or parallel ski.
