The Mighty Mites program helps young skiers develop strong fundamental skills, learn to be part of a team, gain a joy and passion for skiing in a fun and challenging team environment. Our experienced coaches focus on progressive skill acquisition, knowledge of the skier’s responsibility code and safe skiing, respect for the mountain, and having fun. Each Mighty Mite will gain a solid foundation that will enable him or her to continue in one of Squaw Valley’s development programs, and will be proud of their skill achievements and help attain a life-long love of skiing.
