Mysnow Experience for 5–8 year olds

Introducing kids to skiing is simple!

A free activity for kids age 5–8, Mysnow Experience program is an introduction to downhill skiing and snowboarding supervised by qualified, attentive animators. Under the program, a kid-friendly ski area is set up in a local park. They can try out the magic carpet ski lift that will transport them up the hill with ease, make their first turns, and discover the joy of sliding. Mysnow Experience gives parents an opportunity to see if their kids are interested in skiing or snowboarding. It’s a perfect introduction before making the leap to a big ski hill.

 

Come visit us!
