Welcome to Mad River Glen’s children's ski school! Our goal is to infuse our programs with fun and knowledge of safety while teaching technique that will allow your child to improve his/her ability. Our commitment to a small instructor/student ratio allows the children who participate in our program to not only have fun and become awesome skiers, but develop a strong sense of camaraderie while developing lasting mountain friendships. Check out the information below to learn about all the different programs we have for kids and teens. We look forward to skiing with your children this winter!

The Rockin’ Robins

Children ages 4 to 12 who are learning to ski for the first time.

This program is for children who have never skied before or need a refresher on fundamental skills. This program has a small instructor/student ratio (usually 1:4) so your child can get the attention they need to be “mountain ready” as quickly as possible. We do not take kids up the mountain until they can turn, stop and get up on their own.


The Chipmunks

4 to 6 Year olds

This program is for children who can ride the Sunnyside Double Lift. There are several levels of Chipmunks *(see levels below) based on the terrain they feel comfortable on. We focus on safety, fun, adventure, skill development and group dynamics. This program has a low instructor/student ratio (usually 1:8).

The Chipmunks are divided into different groups according to ability.
GREEN: Your child can stop, link turns, and skis primarily in a wedge.
BLUE: Your child skis primarily in a wide track parallel on blue and green marked trails and reverts to a wedge on steeper terrain.
PURPLE: Your child skis primarily in a dynamic parallel on blue and green trails and in a wide track parallel on black marked trails.


The Panthers

Ages 7 to 12 Year Olds

This program is for children who can ride the Sunnyside Double Lift. There are several levels of Panthers *(see levels below) based on the terrain they are comfortable skiing. We focus on safety, fun, adventure, skill development and group dynamics. This program has a comfortable instructor/student ratio (usually 1:8).

The Panthers are divided into different groups according to ability.
GREEN: Your child can stop, link turns, and skis primarily in a wedge.
BLUE: Your child skis primarily in a wide track parallel on blue and green marked trails and reverts to a wedge on steeper terrain.
PURPLE: Your child skis primarily in a dynamic parallel on blue and green trails and in a wide track parallel on black marked trails.


Development Team

Ages 7 to 12 Years Old

This program is for children who are skiing most trails in a relatively dynamic parallel and comfortable with speed. They will work on mountain skills such as bumps, trees, steeps and carving. This group needs to be self sufficient; they need to be able to get lunch on their own, go to the bathroom alone, and be able to find their parents on their own after lessons. They must be able to ride all of the lifts (including the single chair) without an adult. The Development Team is an excellent preparation for the Freeskiing and Racing Teams.


The Freeski Team

Ages 7 and Up

For the "all mountain ripper" that wants to bring their skiing skills to a new level of expertise. They will work on bumps, jumps, steeps, trees and all snow conditions. They will also work on mental skills such as goal setting, teamwork, concentration, perseverance, and sportsmanship. This group needs to be self sufficient; they need to be able to get lunch on their own, go to the bathroom alone, and be able to find their parents on their own after training. They must be able to ride all the lifts (including the single chair) without an adult. In order to ski with the Freeski program the kids have to be skiing in a dynamic parallel on ALL terrain. There will be a girls-only group available on Saturdays. A boys-only group will also be offered on Saturdays. Coed group are available both Saturday and Sundays.


The Telemark Team

Ages 7 and Up

This program is for the kids that love to Telemark ski. Kids who are able to ski down from the top of the Sunnyside double chair are welcome. This group needs to be self sufficient; they need to be able to get lunch on their own, go to the bathroom alone, and be able to find their parents on their own after lessons.
