momlogic's Julie: My family just got back from Park City Mountain Resort, where my kids enjoyed the Signature 5 ski school. They loved it -- and were skiing like pros by the end of the day!
Designed for children ages 6 to 14, the Signature 5 program offers a unique small-group experience for kids -- one that ensures that they enjoy a well-balanced mountain education. And with all kinds of classes and levels -- from skiing to snowboarding, first timers to experts -- there truly is something for everyone. (My kids, ages 7 and 9, were in the beginners group, as this was only their second time skiing.)
Groups spend the day learning proper technique and refining existing skills. They're even served lunch at midday, which was a fun treat for my kids.
Here are the highlights of the class:
- Six-hour all-day group lesson
- Ages 6 to 14
- Maximum class size of five students
- Never-ever to expert levels (Freestyle lessons available for blue-terrain or above skiers or snowboarders.)
- Ski and snowboard lessons
- Includes lift privileges and lunch
- Time: 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
- Meets on snow, ready to go
Helmets are required, so I felt confident that my kids were safe. Best of all, Mommy and Daddy got some private time while the kids were at ski school. Six hours kid-free? Now THAT'S a Christmas miracle!
