Youth Programs

......................................................................................

Whitewater is a great place for kids!  We have developed comprehensive programming for kids ages 4– 13.  The Whitewater Ski & Board Club offers the age categories Little Muckers for kids ages 4-5, The Jokers for kids ages 6-8, and The Blasters for kids ages 9-12.  Each of these programs is open to any ability level and is designed to give youth the skills needed to become great skiers and riders. The Whitewater Ski and Board club will naturally develop your child’s skills through fun activities and games. They will learn the correct technique, be made aware of mountain safety and responsibility, build confidence and learn control, all while meeting new ski buddies.

Freestyle Club is brand new for 2013/2014 and is a nationally run program for skiers which focuses on terrain parks and freestyle skiing technique.
Also make sure to check out our Holiday Camps that run during Christmas and Spring Break, and also our Spring Break Freestyle Camp.
For teen programs or for more advanced programs for youths aged 10-18 please check out the Whitewater Freeride Teams.

"“Whitewater is amazing—that’s the simple truth. It has all types of terrain and a recently added chair that opened up even more of the goods. Add a solid local crew that’s not going to vibe you out and the light, fully interior powder and you’ve got a clear favourite in my opinion.” "
