Activity note: To learn about the ski area and terrain visit: http://www.skicb.com/the-mountain/trail-maps Each day the group will ski with a leader-guide and other similar skiers with which they are matched.

Afternoon: This program is open to skiing levels from intermediate to advanced, so we’ll begin by sorting participants into smaller groups based on ability and interests. We’ll meet each morning at a designated place planned the evening before. Mountain skiing field trips will be led by experienced guides. You’ll have opportunities to work on particular skills or perfect some of the runs while also absorbing fascinating aspects of natural history. The program offers a genuine mountain skiing experience for all skiers thanks to a mix of quality terrain at all points on the mountain. From refined groomed runs to challenging moguls, there truly is something for everyone in this group.
