Mini Rippers Weekend Ski & Snowboard Camps

Mini Rippers is an 8-week ski or snowboard camp which starts on the first weekend of January. You have the choice between the Saturday camp or the Sunday camp. Mini Rippers is an opportunity for your child to make new friends and improve their skiing/snowboarding each week. Date to be announced (check back).


Mini Rippers is a fun introductory program for beginner and intermediate riders to ski and snowboard with friends. The program is taught using the development and learning program guidelines of the Canada Ski Instructors Alliance and the Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors. Participants will sign up for either Saturdays or Sundays, and groups will be adjusted each week as skills develop (i.e. if you sign up on Saturday you will stay on Saturday, but your instructor may change).

The camp will start from 12:00 to 3:00 PM, with a short break at 1.30 PM at the base area. Parents/guardians must be available to assist with break.
