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). These lessons are only available at Mt. Bachelor's West Village base area.

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.

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. If space is available, we welcome walk-in lessons. Please arrive at the Gravity School Kids Center - Mountain Ripper Room - by 9:00 a.m. (8:30 a.m. during holiday periods) in order to ensure that your child and his/her classmates begin their lesson on time. If you arrive later than 9:00 a.m., your child may not receive his/her full lesson.


WHAT TO BRING TO YOUR LESSON

To help keep positive experiences for your child's lesson, remember to bring a waterproof jacket, gloves, goggles, face masks, extra layers and socks - Weather conditions tend to vary and change quickly. If you do not have the above articles, we do have them for purchase at the mountain.


ALL DAY LESSONS - AGES 3 ½ - 5 YEARS

Upon your arrival to the mountain, head for the West Village base area and visit the dedicated "Mountain Rippers" room on the lower level of the West Village Lodge (at the top of the concrete walkway). This is where we will check-in your child and fit him/her with boots, skis and a helmet. All-day programs also include a "kids choice" lunch. It's always best to schedule a lesson in advance (see below), but we gladly accept walk-ins on a space available basis.
