Cub Club: Child Lessons Ages 4-12

The Cub Club is Bear Valley’s child lesson center and is the perfect place to introduce and excite your 4 to 12 year-old to the thrills of skiing and snowboarding.  Small lesson groups are divided based on age and ability (beginning – intermediate), then paired with an enthusiastic instructor to embark on a snowy adventure.

Cub Club instructors are professionally trained and encourage children to ski and snowboard in a controlled manner with confidence and a smile.  Cub Club lessons are purposefully kept small to enable a positive learning environment for you child.  A typical student to instructor ratio for a 4-7 year olds class is 4:1, and 6:1 for 8-12 year olds class.  Our goal is to instill a passion for sport sports and create lifelong skiers and snowboarders.

Cub Club is open 7 days a week and offers two lesson types, Full & Late Day.  Lesson packages include equipment rental, lift ticket, and lessons.  Snacks and lunch are provided for all Cub Club lessons.  Cub Club has its own carpet lift (Lil Cub Carpet) to provide a playful and uncrowded area only for children’s lessons.

Advanced reservations are highly recommended as classes do sell out.  Pre-paid Cub Club lesson reservations report straight to the Cub Club upon arrival.  Limited walk-in space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis through .
