 Sunshine Village Big Mountain freeriders Banff, Alberta (AB)This series of lessons is designed for kids 13 to 17 years old who want to have fun in a group of their own ability, from basic skill development to tactical improvement on steeps, bumps, powder and carving.

For children who are skiing black and double black terrain and want to push themselves in our BIG Mountain/Free ride zones you can choose the “DIVE” option upon registration and they will be placed in groups that will introduce your child into snow safety and extreme skiable terrain at Sunshine such as Delirium Dive and the Wild West.  They will learn the proper use of a Beacon, Shovel and Probe so they must be owned. 

If your child is at the black and double black ability level and you do not wish them to go into the Freeride zones do not choose the “DIVE” option and they will be placed in a different group.

The programs run each Saturday or Sunday for a period of 10 weeks full day lessons from 10 a.m to 3:30 p.m. Lunch is NOT included but can be added on.  Groups are eight children to one Instructor.

10 Saturdays or Sundays, starting Jan. 4th or 5th 2014 to March 15th or 16th 2014 (excluding Family Day weekend Feb. 15th/16th 2014).
