Kids Multi-Week Programs

Mt. Bachelor's multi-week programs are pretty awesome! Kids get the same coach every time. They ski or ride with lots of the same kids each week, make tons of friends and end up knowing the terrain better than mom or dad. They'll learn life lessons like responsibility, trust, safety, and navigation while they have fun on the mountain.

Sign-ups for our Kids Gravity School multi-week lessons MUST occur online via our eStore.

If you experience difficulties during the online sign-up process, you can call our Reservations Center at 1-800-829-2442 and one of our Reservations team members can help guide you through the online sign-up process.

What Does My Child Need To Bring?

Please have your child prepared with:

  • Lift ticket or season pass. While Mighty Mite students who are 5 and under ski free, parents still need to pick-up a "Child’s Ticket" at a ticket window.
  • Rental or own equipment - labeled with your child’s name (duct tape works well).
  • Lunch, in a labeled, weatherproof container. (Large zip baggies work great).
  • Weatherproof jacket and pants.
  • Helmet, gloves and under-layers.
  • Goggles or sunglasses.
  • Sunscreen and lip balm.

Cancellation Policy

All Gravity School ski and snowboard programs (and Childcare) have a 24-hour Cancellation Policy: If you need to cancel or change a lesson or childcare reservation, please contact us at least 24 hours prior to the lesson or child care date. Cancellations or changes within 24 hours of reservation date are subject to a $25 fee. Cancellations or no shows the day of the reservations will forfeit 100% of the reservation product cost.

Minor Helmet Requirement

Mt. Bachelor strives to be an industry leader in Mountain Safety. To further this goal we are requiring students 17 and under in any Kids Gravity School ski or snowboard lesson program to wear ski and snowboard specific helmets during lessons. For your convenience Mt. Bachelor offers helmets for rent or sale. Additional information about helmets and snow sports can be found on the NSAA’s website at lidsonkids.org.

Kids on Lifts

Using a chair lift or gondola while skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, or even just sightseeing, is an exceptionally safe and secure mode of transportation. Nonetheless incidents and accidents can happen – especially when people are unaware of loading, riding and unloading procedures. Educate your children about loading, riding and unloading lifts. Slope safety and personal responsibility should be discussed prior to hitting the slopes or using a lift.

Keep in mind, when your child loads a lift chair without you, they may not always be riding with another adult. Remember, it's your responsibility to know how to use and ride the lift safely as well as your child's. Having the knowledge and dexterity to use the lift properly will ensure fun for everyone. More info from Kidsonlifts.org.
