    • In A Nutshell:  Trailblazer is the highest skill level classification in our group lesson system. While some Trailblazers have all they can handle on an easy green run, other kids in this group ski black diamond steeps and bumps with ease.
    • During the initial skills assessment period, children are observed making a series of turns and placed in groups of like age and ability to help set the atmosphere for a successful lesson.
    • The Next Level:  Additional challenge and specialized coaching can be found in the form of private lessons through the Mountain Adventures Program in our regular ski school or competitive programs in junior racing, freestyle and freeride disciplines - offered at the Mountain Sports Center.
