The Shooting Stars 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 coach is specially trained to provide a safe, fun learning environment for all levels. Each Shooting Star will gain a solid foundation that will enable him or her to continue on to the Mighty Mites program and will be proud of their skill achievements and help attain a life-long love of skiing.
