Joining the Cub Club is a great way to learn how to have a great time on the mountain.  Your kids will have a blast as they learn to ride, slide or glide down the mountain.  Our caring instructors will help your child progress from a beginner “Cub” , to a roaring “Grizzly” and have a great time in the process.  Our instructors will carefully evaluate your child’s needs and make recommendations on ways to improve their skills and having a ton of fun every time they hit the slopes!
