The Junior Development and Mountain Explorer programs are designed to take developing skiers and snowboarders to greater levels. Participants experience personal instruction on racing, moguls, and steeper terrain according to individual skill level. On-slope coaching, video analysis, and lunch are all included in the program. Both programs feature small class sizes separated by skill level and age group.

Programs are held on select dates from 9am until 3pm. Participants are entitled to a $25 Individual Advantage Card purchase. Lease or rental equipment are available for an additional charge. There must be a minimum of 4 students enrolled per class/per age and ability level. Participants must be able to ride a chairlift and make linking turns on the advanced green trails off the Dipsy Quad.

Pre-registration is required for all multi-week programs. To register, please contact Debbie Herrold at snowsports@skiliberty.com.
