There is a point, an age, where young skiers and riders no longer want to attend a group lesson with ski and ride school and they definitely don’t want to spend the day with their parents … how embarrassing! At the same time, parents would like their teens to benefit from professional coaching and learn something new, even though they are on vacation. The instructors at Winter Park Resort sat down to create a “cool” program where teens can have a fun, social experience and parents are assured their kids will progress their skill set. New this season, Winter Park Ski & Ride School will offer five Teen Freeride Camps in conjunction with winter and spring breaks. Available to skiers and snowboarders ages 14-17, this camp is designed to provide teens with the opportunity to discover the mountain in a new way – their way. Each morning groups are formed with similar ability levels and the teens decide what they would like accomplish. Teens can master a certain trick they watched online or saw in a magazine, they can also choose to hit up any part of the mountain with young, likeminded coaches; the Winter Park Teen Freeride Camps offer young skiers and riders the freedom to design their own experience. The coaches will even hold the camera as they stomp a new trick so they can post and make all their friends jealous. Once the morning runs or tricks are owned, the coaches will join the group on-mountain for a lunch break to rehash the morning and get ready for the afternoon. Camp dates include December 20-24, Dec. 27-31, March 7-11, March 14-18, and March 21-25. Teens can choose one, two, three, four or all five consecutive days. Price begins at $120 for a pre-booked single day and goes up to $499 for pre-booked five day camp. Price includes camp, lift access, lunch, helmet and real-time GPS powered by Flaik.
