need individual attention and special
handling! Each child learns at their own pace.
With more than 30 years experience teaching children,
Adventure Ski & Snowboard School has found
that children learn best with Private Instruction.
This is especially important in the beginning
level of learning a new, adventurous activity
as skiing or snowboarding.
Adventure Ski & Snowboard School teaches
up to 4 people at a time, and each with their
own instructor. This way we can work with families
or a group of people with different ages and abilities,
and/or different sports (skiing and snowboarding),
all at the same time
lessons allow each person to learn at
their own pace. By not having to wait for someone
else to "keep up", OR feeling like you're
holding-up the class, private lessons can help
most people to concentrate on the task at hand
and benefit from the individual attention offered
by their instructor. Our children's Private Instruction,
"hands-on" instruction, where we start
off holding the front of the skis &/or snowboards
to help ensure they stay on their feet, will soon
turn into confidence and independence!!
Our warm, dry, and more controlled environment is the best way to help your child
learn or improve their technique, get used to
getting in and out of their boots and equipment,
and to be introduced to good fundamentals that
they can build on in future seasons. What a wonderful
way for the entire family to enjoy your outdoor
Kid's Learn on
"Magic Carpet" Before Hitting The Slopes!

Be sure your child expresses a desire to ski. Talk about
skiing, rent a skiing video or look at a skiing magazine together. Ask him if it looks
like something he'd like to try. If your child is unenthusiastic, it's probably better to
pursue something else.
Get professional instruction. Safety and ski etiquette are two very
important aspects of ski instruction that are often neglected when parents or friends
attempt to teach children. Professional ski instructors who have worked with kids usually
have discovered great tools that help get quick results.

first day on the slopes for many children means being crowded into a ski class
with 10 other kids and only one instructor. Noses are cold, the bulky cloths are awkward,
and other skiers shushing by are distracting and intimidating - not exactly the ideal
environment for learning a new sports skill.
But there is a way to enjoy a wonderful family ski trip and avoid the
first day of tears and frustration. Children can learn to ski in a controlled environment,
safely and quickly, before you even rent the equipment and pack up the car. Put together
an 18-foot-wide revolving carpet equipped with remote control and large mirrors placed at
the foot of the "run," add an eager student and a professional ski instructor,
"Children can accomplish in one hour what they normally would in an
entire day on the slopes," says Kent Bry, director of Adventure Ski Schools in
Encinitas, CA , "simply because they can spend more time up on their skis instead of
on their rear ends." A typical one-hour session on a ski machine provides a beginner
with all the basics. Most important, the ability to control speed and to stop. Remember,
for sun-soaked San Diego kids not accustomed to snow, the wet white stuff is completely
foreign--and potentially dangerous. Most parents know their little darling is virtually
fearless. Sure, your child may be courageous enough to barrel down the steepest run the
moment he snaps on his skis. But is he learning much? And more important, is he safe? In
most cases, the answer to both questions is no.
Without proper knowledge of the basics, any skier becomes a hazard to himself and
others. And it's easy to get the basics on a ski machine. Most schools offer one-on-one
attention from a professional ski instructor and the use of remote control to stop the
carpet (to avoid falls or rolling down the "hill"). Mirrors are used to help
with body positioning and provide instant visual feedback. Some schools also offer
videotaping of sessions. The environment eliminates the distraction of the elements,
cumbersome clothes and other skiers. All these things add up to confidence for a child who
can now approach the hill knowing he's logged a whole "day" on the "magic
Adventure Ski School instructs children ages two and a half and up. All necessary equipment is generally
provided at one reasonable price--usually at about the cost of a lift ticket. Ski machines
are also a great way for experienced skiers to tone up and prepare for the season. The
experts are predicting a wet winter. So get ready to ski and forget about your
"what-to-do-with-the-kids" blues. This year when you arrive at the mountain your
child will already have all the skills he needs to enjoy a great first day. No fuss, no
tears, and the family can play together! Happy skiing!
Special arrangements can be made to rent by the hour, the Ski & Snowboard School facility, including all equipment (skis, snowboards, boots, plastic flying saucer disks, giant stationary and revolving carpet treadmill for riding, sliding, running, skiing, &/or snowboarding, etc.) with instructors. You bring the cake and the kid's ( &/ or adults), and the decorations if you want, and we'll provide lots of fun. (See video)
We recommend a 2 hour party for a group of 8 people. We can accommodate up to 20 people inside our facility, and if necessary, additional space is available outside for up to 200. We can customize the activities and the amount of instruction according to the size of your group, which will determine the price. Please call for more info and pricing which is based on the size and time of your celebration event.
