Children's Ski & Snowboard Lessons

Teaching them young is best, but a tall order.

Our children's Ski School Instructors are picked for their patience and personality. And each program is geared for age and ability. The Buckaroo Express will whisk our littlest guests up the hillside to The Ranch, a state-of-the-art Beaver Creek Ski and Snowboard school designed just for them. Parents can also rest easy knowing their kids will have healthy and fresh food options at lunchtime as part of Vail Resorts’ healthy lunch program.

Track your progress in Ski and Snowboard School with EpicMix Academy! View your skills and certified pins from your personal dashboard, plus add family members to your account to view their progress.
