Baker Beginnings is an introductory program for skiers and snowboarders age 7-12 who are new to the sport. Trained instructors help build a solid foundation in skiing and snowboarding skills while introducing kids and youth to the mountain environment. The sessions are active, instructive, and social, focusing on safety, fun, and learning.

The Baker Beginnings program is a beginner program, designed for participants who are brand new to the sport or still working towards linking turns on easy green terrain. If you have questions about whether this program is appropriate for you, please email [email protected].
