Your child will explore Gore's amazing variety of terrain all season with consistent coaching and camaraderie with friends, while building a strong foundation of skiing/riding skills. Kids ski or ride each weekend with the same group of coaches who gear each session toward their needs and learning styles. This program is open to all ability levels and new participants will be evaluated on the first weekend and placed in a group with others of similar age and ability. Organized activities such as scavenger hunts and fun races are included. Children ready to challenge themselves may spend time in our terrain parks, glades, race gates, and bumps. Those interested in participating in our open events throughout the season can practice necessary skills and get feedback from their coaches.
