The best way to get your little tyke to experience our winter wonderland on skis. Your child will benefit from teaching techniques that have been expertly devised by the Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance (CSIA). Our pros are trained specifically to deal with the needs of this age group. They'll get results much faster than when a parent or friend tries to teach them, and as a bonus you'll have some much-appreciated free time on the hill to get in some skiing without having to tow the little ones around.
