U6 - LITTLE RIPPERS PROGRAM SUMMARY (Ages 4 & 5)
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 the ski school.
