Little Rippers

This program is designed for little racers that may not be able to ride the lift on their own yet, but are interested in racing and are already strong independent skiers. This program is designed as a pre-entry point to our core racing program and is only for advanced and independent Little Rippers - it is not a replacement for proper instruction and lessons offered through ski school.

At Loch Lomond Ski Area - children should be able to confidently ski the Snoopy, the Sunbowl and the Chicken and independently ski the Pine.

Please note: Parents are expected to accompany the group and ride the lift with their athletes during these sessions.
