Give your child all the right reasons to fall in love with skiing and snowboarding at a young age. The Trailblazer program is designed to instill a passion for the sport right from day one. Your child will learn the necessary skills to ensure a fun-filled future of enjoying the slopes.
Our professional instructors will focus on safety, mountain awareness, skill development, and snow experiences to help your youngster get the most out of every day on the hill.
The Ice Cream Cup celebrates the completion of the session and all the memories that accompany this wonderful program. This event is a fun obstacle course that is setup for Trailblazer participants on the Lower Roundabout trail off of the Kokomo lift. After all kiddos have gotten their turn on the course we will host an ice cream social upstairs in our schoolhouse (parents are welcome to join).

What are your goals/expectations for Trailblazers?
Our goal is to instill a love for skiing or snowboarding in our young students within a safe, fun, and nurturing environment. Skill acquisition depends on their motor, social and developmental skills. Although we cannot base their success entirely on riding the chair, we do know it plays a factor. Please remember every child learns at their own pace.
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.
Lesson Day Information
Meeting time is 9:00 AM / 12:30PM. Please allow plenty of time for your commute to Copper Mountain as well as your shuttle ride to West Village. If you are late, call the late line at 970-968-3263, then go to the meeting area. We will do our best to try to contact your child’s class, but there are no guarantees.
To ensure the fun and safety of program members and supervisors, we ask that your child be potty trained and ready for a peaceful separation from parents.
