We Make It Fun

The ElkoKids SnoBowl Ski/Board Program consists of five exciting two-hour lessons for ages 6-16. Lessons are held on Saturdays for "Slush/Board Puppies," those that have never skied/boarded, and "Sno/Board Hounds," those that have some ski/board experience.  The ElkoKids SnoBowl Ski/Board Program specializes in making learning to ski/board a fun and safe experience.  All lessons are directed by certified instructors to help your child develop the skills required to enjoy a lifetime of winter fun on the slopes.

Our Goals

While providing a safe and progressive experience with a huge emphasis on fun, our aim is for your child to become an independent skier/boarder with an awareness of mountain safety and the skills to become "all-mountain masters."  During each lesson our instructors will use positive and creative coaching techniques to maximize learning and excitement.
