Kid's Rule

KidsRule Ski & Snowboard Lessons

 

What Is KidsRule?

KidsRule aims to offer a fresh approach to kids ski and snowboard lessons - one where we provide a safe & fun learning experience within a friendly, skill driven, & confidence boosting environment that encourages a love for skiing & riding, as well as sparking a passion for being outdoors! To accomplish this, our Massachusetts kids ski lessons programs use our specially designed learning environment – Terrain Based Learning – as well as our trained & tested instructors. We aim to foster a love for skiing & snowboarding in kids aged 4 – 14. Our junior ski lessons are taught by some of the best skiing & snowboarding professionals in the business, with the goal of making our program the best children’s snowsports program in Massachusetts and Southern Vermont!

2021-22

All resort guests, vaccinated and unvaccinated, are strongly recommended to wear masks covering their nose and mouth when in indoor settings, unless in the act of eating or drinking. ​Please check back frequently for updates, as operational procedures for our kids ski school may change at any time.  

Our plans for KidsRule continue to evolve for the 2021 - 22 season. Our goal is to return to as "normal" as possible. We feel confident in our ability to provide a safe and healthy experience for both guests and staff, outdoors on the slopes. However, serving lunch indoors presents a challenge, due to space constraints. Therefore, KidsRule 2021-22 will not include lunch.  

  • Full day KidsRule sessions will be available 7 days a week, with hours of operation from 9:30 to 11:30 am, and resuming 1:00 - 3:30 pm. Parents will pick-up their child / chilren at 11:30 and provide lunch during the break. Our kids ski and snowboard lessons include a lift ticket, valid until 6 pm, instruction, and hot cocoa breaks.

Take a Look at a Typical Junior Ski or Snowboard Lesson

No matter your child’s skill level, our kids ski and snowboard lessons will create a fun and educational experience that is sure to enhance their skills. To guarantee the best possible learning environment, children will be assigned to groups based on their ages and abilities. Please familiarize yourself with our Snowsports Level Chart to ensure your child is in the correct group for their ability.

Our ski and snowboard classes for kids will begin in our terrain based learning area located on the Chipmunk and Cricket slopes. Here they’ll learn the fundamentals including how to balance and proper stances. As the day progresses, children will also learn how to safely load and unload a chairlift and progress to more challenging trails and terrain.
