Learn To Fly Ski

The Learn to Fly Ski (LTF) program is designed for children ages 7 – 12 who are ready to take their intermediate/advanced skiing ability to the next level. Children in the LTF program will develop their all-mountain skiing skills and be introduced to basic racing techniques through a fun and challenging weekly curriculum designed to improve technique and confidence on all types of terrain and snow conditions. While progressing their skiing ability, athletes will learn on-mountain etiquette, build camaraderie with teammates, and cultivate an overall love for the sport. For over 20 years the Learn to Fly program has been nurturing the passion for skiing in children, giving them enjoyment for a lifetime of winters.
