  • Terrain Used:  L’il Troopers begin the lesson with boot games and drills on flat terrain with/without their skis on.  Troopers progress to the slightly-inclined terrain serviced by the Magic Carpet/Boardwalk and may progress to School Haus Run (the “bunny hill”) over the course of the lesson.

  • The Next Level:  L’il Troopers progressing to the “next level” usually move into our Pathfinders or Explorers programs. 
  • L’il Troopers lesson may be combined with Day Care. Please call (716) 699-3933 for a reservation if Day Care is required

**This program is limited to a two-hour time block because children in this age group generally do not have the stamina to last through an all-day session. Three-year-old children have little or no success when grouped with children in the L’il Troopers age group. For this reason, we have developed our Cub Kadet program specifically for your three-year-old child.
