The Specifics- Master The Mountain

The Master The Mountain groups will meet nearly every Sunday throughout the winter, 2-5 pm. The focus is to teach our Club Members a good foundation for being all mountain skiers and/or snowboarders.  We will utilize the amazing and talented instructors of Crystal Mountain to develop skill sets that meet each skier and rider where they are, and take them to the next level.  We formulate the kids, 7-17 years old, into age and skill appropriate groups so that we can build on-mountain camaraderie and friendships. After all, it's always more fun to be on the mountain with friends!

The next generation has taken to the slopes. Our Master The Mountain program is in full effect!
