U6 Skiing, age 5

U6 is a development program for participants who are ready to ski in a group. Fundamental skiing skills and skiing as a group are introduced in an encouraging and fun way. All skiers must be able to stop and turn by themselves before the start of the program. Participants must be 5 years old by December 31, 2021.
