Multi-Week Ski & Snowboard Lessons

2018/19 Bobcats & Big Cats

Bobcats & Big Cats are multi-week skiing and snowboarding lesson programs for children. These multi-week programs are designed to foster the love for winter sports, improve skills, independence, balance, and a great way to make new friends. Each session includes four Sunday lessons. Groups are broken down by age and skill level to make learning fun and safe. Your children will love learning from our instructors in the Kids Fun Zone and beyond. Parents, this is your time to enjoy the mountain while your children are doing the same with our Professional Ski & Snowboard Instructors.

The best way to experience these programs is with a season pass because lift tickets are not included (children 5 and under enjoy a free lift ticket). Join one session or all four. Don’t forget about the Mulligan: If you miss any session for any reason, enjoy a half-priced group lesson at any time. Sessions include lunch.

For the 2018-19 season, special pricing and a competitive option are available for Big Cats! The Big Cat Comp program includes 20 full day sessions during the 17-18 winter which includes 4 Grand Targhee competitions, 2 Club races and 2 freestyle events.

Pounce Back and save $20.  (Save $20 if your child has participated in a previous session.)
