Located in our state of the art Schoolhouse children's center, the Micro Bears is a great introduction to snow sports. Kids are taught age appropriate skills by our specially trained adventure guides.  Half day and full day programs include on-snow experiences. Indoor time is devoted to activities and movements that enhance on-snow time and activities that make their time at the Schoolhouse fun and enjoyable.  The amount of time spent outside depends on conditions and individual stamina levels.

Micro Bears must be 3 years old, potty trained, and willing to have fun!
