This long-running running program is for youth ages 6-14 years. Volunteer instructors work closely with students and parents to instill a love of skiing and snowboarding.
At the heart of the program is family involvement. Parents are encouraged to volunteer as coaches, and in doing so learn skills they can carry forward and use after the Program. This is a perennial family favorite!
The MADski Program utilizes PSIA/USSA training for our parent/coaches. This is a great chance for everyone to hone their skiing skills and learn the latest techniques and tips to make skiing easier and more fun. We have videos and DVD’s available at Stove and Fireplace Works for all parent/coaches to sign out and review at home. We can always use more help on the hill working with the kids. Steve will work with all parents who are interested in assisting. We offer a full day lift ticket at half day price to any parent that helps on the hill and takes the afternoon instruction.
We strongly encourage participants to stay for the afternoon and practice what they learned that morning, or relax and ski with their friends.
