Introduced in 1999, the All-Mountain program is designed to enable young skiers to master all types of terrain and snow condition with confidence. This program focuses on the development of all-mountain skiing skills that can eventually be applied to ski racing or to a lifetime of recreational skiing enjoyment.
Participation in the All-Mountain program has steadily increased to 140 participants in recent years. The success of the program lies with its orientation toward fun and time spent skiing all trails at Great Divide Ski Area. Coaches teach groups as a team but with personal attention and support to each young skier.
The All Mountain program is open to skiers ages 6 to 12 who have basic skiing skills as this is not a beginner program. Skiers must be able to handle their own equipment, make controlled turns, be able to ride the Good Luck Lift without assistance and have a desire to learn and have fun. Participation of skiers younger than 7 will be considered by the director of the program and is based on ability and maturity.
Skiers are responsible for their own equipment and lift ticket. Scholarships are available on request and are based on need. Early registration is encouraged as space is limited. Great Divide Ski Area has a great ski equipment rental program.
The fee is $250 for either Saturday or Sunday, due in full by January 2, 2019.
Be ready to load lifts at 9:30 am. There is a snack break approximately 11:00-11:30, then we ski again until 1:30 pm.
