Ski & Snowboard Program Lessons

Programs are a group lesson option for children as young 3 years old as well as older children and adults. Our Snow Sports School offers two multi-day programs throughout the season. Our January Ski & Ride Program is a once a week program for 6 weeks that start in January, registration begins in mid-September. The February Vacation Week program is a 3-day lesson held during the school vacation week, registration begins in mid-January. You must register online or in our office for either program. In addition to our multi-day programs, we offer daily private lessons and walk-in group lessons all season long. Visit our snow sports page for information. Our staff has been trained specifically in teaching skills based progressions from novice through advanced levels.  Many of our staff members have advanced their knowledge and skills base by becoming professionally certified in their discipline by Professional Ski Instructors of America and American Association of Snowboard Instructors (PSIA/AASI).  Some staff members are pursuing higher levels of certification and have attained other certifications such as Children's Specialist 1 & 2, Freestyle Specialist 1 & 2.

January Ski & Ride Lesson Program

This multi-week program consists of a weekly lesson for 6 consecutive weeks starting in January. Children as young as 3 years old can participate in addition to older children and adults! Program options vary according to sport, age, and experience level and are designed to introduce or hone your child's skills in a fun group setting. Classes, especially weekend classes, can and will sell out, so please enroll early. Registration will be held online or in office. Schedule of registration will be determined by Labor Day. Enrollment for this January program begins in mid-September.

CHOOSING A PROGRAM

Programs are listed below and separated by ski and snowboard then by age and/or skill level. First choose your sport (Ski or Board) then choose from the programs according to your child's age (as of 1/1/18) and skill level.  Please contact us if you feel your child doesn't fit in the available programs. In some cases, private lessons may be recommended.

SCHEDULE

Once you choose a program that best suits your child, choose a day and time. Upon registering you will attend all 6 classes at this day/time. You cannot change days and any missed classes will be forfeited. Please see absences and postponements.

Equipment will be available during your scheduled lesson only. Any future uses would require an additional fee and set-up.

If you have difficulty please email us your updates before registration day at help@yawgoo.com.  (Note: if next to your child's level it says "Update for 2018" then your child's level has been manually adjusted by our staff and should only be changed if your child participated in additional lessons after last year's program.)

SOLD OUT PROGRAMS / WAITLIST

We are no longer accepting names for the waitlist. Please consider our walk-in group lesson or private lesson options.

ABCENCES/ MAKE-UP CLASSES

In previous years we offered a make-up week class which caused some confusion on how it works. This year, all students are welcome to attend all 6 weeks, but we will not credit, refund, or offer an additional class should you miss any (medical reasons will be accepted with a physician's note). 6 weeks will be offered to every registered student. You cannot attend a class at a different time or day. Absences are not the same as postponements/inclement weather.

POSTPONEMENTS/ INCLEMENT WEATHER

Postponements are days we hold back a week for any or all classes held on that specific day. Please note we are a winter facility so we make every attempt to hold classes in cold, snow, light rain, sun, light wind, etc. In some cases, we may opt to postpone classes for the safety of our guests and staff. These decisions are not officially announced typically until the morning of your class day by 7:30am (usually earlier). Check our website, social media or join our text alerts (HERE- Rainedout.net) for updates that day. Should your class be postponed, we will resume the following week and continue the sessions from there. Some years classes have been postponed through February. Please consider this before enrolling; we offer walk-in group lessons for ages 7 and up should you be unable to commit to all 6 weeks.

CLASS DAY

On the first day of classes please be sure to arrive early to meet your instructor and group. Programs do not include a lift pass for skiing/riding before or after each lesson EXCEPT the turn & tour program. Should your child wish to practice before or after lesson; a lift ticket must be purchased. Discounted tickets are available for registered students at lesson times on the day of a held lesson, purchase at ticket window that day.

Please direct questions to help@yawgoo.com or 401.294.3802 ext 112

February Vacation Lesson Program

This program is a 3-day option held during the school vacation week. Classes are held once daily on Tuesday (Feb 20), Wednesday (Feb 21), and Thursday (Feb 22). Due to the increase of schools no longer offering this vacation week we are considering an after school option. Please check back in January for this information.

Check back in January 2018 for next year's program
