What are your goals/expectations for Choppers?

Choppers focus on skill development and mountain etiquette. Coaches use a variety of techniques to promote better balance and body awareness to improve your child's alpine skiing or snowboarding while maintaining a fun, safe environment. Additionally, the program includes lessons, a Copper Pass, and GPS tracking.

The First Day

The instructors will do a “verbal split.” They will ask you and your child questions about terrain, speed, comfort zone and the last time they skied to help determine classes. From this information groups are formed based on ability, speed, stamina and goals. The school will then do an on-hill assessment with a Supervisor to ensure that each child fits into their group correctly.
