1. Students must be potty trained

2. Students must be able to independently & safely use the rope tow

3. Students must be able to independently and safely control their speed in the beginner’s area

Note: Out of respect for the other students in the Youth Academy, if your child DOES NOT meet all of these requirements, a private lesson is recommended. This will ensure that your child gets the most out of their time with the instructor(s).

Students will methodically work through the PSIA goals progressions from new skiers through linked turns.
