This year we are going to approach snow sports education differently at Tamarack Resort. We have been working diligently to build a 100% Nationally Certified Staff of Instructors through the Professional Ski Instructors of America and American Association of Snowboard Instructors. We have come to the realization that snow sports education in general is beginning to look different. We’re moving away from the one size fits most generalities that all students learn the same, and that there is a system that they can fit into.
We are excited to be able to expand our Trailblazers program this 2020/2021 season. We will have one day, or two day options available. Trailblazers will continue to be coached by our certified and experienced instructors that are passionate about snow sports.
Trailblazers is designed for children ages 4-12 having previous skiing experience. Participants must be able to confidently ski basic green terrain in control making level 2 turns at a minimum and be able to perform a gliding wedge to a stop.
We will maintain a low student/instructor ratio and adjust class capacities accordingly to meet our goal to abide by all local guidelines in regard to COVID-19 protocols (5 to 1 ratio). Student grouping will be based on a combination of age and ability, this gives us the most opportunity to divide classes and keep them challenging and appropriate to the student’s desires.
