2013-2014 Kids Local’s Program News

Thank you for your interest in the Snow King Sports School Local’s Programs for 2013-2014!

We are excited to guide your children in developing a passion for winter, for Snowsports and for the mountain environment. As you will notice we offer programs from 3:30 pm-5:30 pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in order to take advantage of the only night skiing in the valley. Our Saturday programs are designed to provide options for families who are busy during the weekday evening hours. Our hope is to provide an opportunity for all our local children to learn!

Transportation: Teton County School District now provides Activity Bus access to Snow King from all of the in-town schools. In order for your kid(s) to ride the bus, you’ll need to go to the Bus Barn (TCSD Transportation Office) to sign them up in person. The ‘Bus Barn’ is off of Gregory Lane. We’ll have a bus greeter to meet kids as they arrive and help them find equipment, get changed into their boots, meet up with their instructor, and get out on snow.

Equipment Storage: The school district does not allow skis and poles on the buses. Parents may drop off skis at any time during the day in the vicinity of the bottom of the rope tow. Or, NEW this year, we will be providing ski/board storage for kids at two locations convenient to where the kids get dropped off and picked up.

Our Beginner Area Rope Tow is located alongside Snow King Avenue. This provides beginners with user-friendly terrain ideal for developing skills to take up the hill. Come watch your child learn to ski or ride.

Snowboard: Our expanded Snowboard Program happens on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons (non-ski program days) so children can have a chance to learn to ski and to snowboard. Check out Snowboarding this winter at “The King”!

We know that finding recreation dollars can be difficult these days, but we do offer the best value compared to the surrounding resorts. Our pricing is very reasonable, especially when you consider our convenient location and experienced instructor staff. Snow King has played a large role in developing many life-long enthusiasts of winter sports, as well as world class skier and riders. Please continue to support your local Town Hill so that it can continue to support ski and ride education for the local and visitor alike.

Again, thank you for your interest and if you should require any other information please contact us here at the Mountain Sports School. Links to registration forms are at the top of this page.

Let’s make this another great season!

Program pricing and Registration Forms


4 and 5 year olds

•                Children Must Have Been Born Before JANUARY 1, 2010!

•                Children Must be Potty Trained, and Must Have Own Gear

•                Season-Long ‘Lesson Pass’ included.

This program is designed for younger children who may need more individual attention, more time on the Rope Tow and a shorter lesson commitment. Our caring instructors will introduce the basics of skiing in a calm and controlled environment at our Rope Tow alongside Snow King Avenue in front of the Snow King Hotel. This terrain is quite gentle, and has no through traffic, resulting in a better learning environment.

This is the perfect age for kids to get into skiing, so bring them to The King for a great time!

Either of the above can be combined with 2 hour Tuesday and Thursday afternoon programs that start at 3:45.
