What Level Am I?

What Level Am I?

When you are signing up for any of our lessons, we will ask what level skier/snowboarder you are.  This helps us put you with the right instructor and class for your needs.  Please see the infomation below for our standardized list of levels.

If you aren’t sure which level your child is, or they are in between levels, please choose a lower level. Our trained instructors will move them up when they are ready.
