We ask that a parent be prepared to ski with their children. Having parents involved will allow us to keep the group moving in the cold weather, and allow one on one support. Beginners often need to be picked up and helped but COVID-19 protocols will prohibit leaders from contacting skiers this year.
The goal of this program is to introduce participants to an “Active Start” and the early development of fundamental movement skills which increase physical literacy. An increased physical literacy is linked to life-long participation in physical activity.
