Kids Daily Lessons - Rippers/Riders
Kids Gravity School for children ages 3 ½ to 5 years guarantees a maximum group size of three. This means personalized attention and, when ready, children will always ride lifts with their instructor. Kids Gravity School is staffed by instructors who specialize in working with younger children. The program includes lift ticket, on snow instruction, equipment rental and lunch ( for full day guests ). The Gravity School Kids Center - Mountain Ripper Room - is located in the lower level of West Village Lodge. Hours are 9:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. (8:30 a.m. opening during weekend and holiday periods).
Participating children must be willing to ski with their group and be ready to separate from their parents. NOTE: Children need to be completely potty trained (no pull-ups) Gravity School does not have the same capability as Childcare to handle accidents.
Available at WEST VILLAGE ONLY. Not available at Sunrise Lodge.
Reservations are strongly recommended at least two to four days in advance. Due to increased popularity, lessons typically sell out, especially Fridays - Sundays and holiday periods, we apologize that we cannot accommodate same-day reservations.
