Kid Kruizers is a lesson program designed for children ages 7-12. Students of similar age and ability work with instructors in a group setting learning how to ski and board or build on existing knowledge.

Saturdays, Sundays and holidays (i.e Presidents day, Christmas break, MLK day), we offer both half and full day sessions. Half day lessons are 1.5 hours long, with start times of 10:30 a.m or 1:30 p.m. Full day kruizers combines both A.M. and P.M. sessions.

Ski Teams


The Discovery Ski Education Foundation (DSEF) is a nonprofit, parent-run organization. The team has been at the heart of coaching young athletes with talent and enthusiasm since Discovery’s early days. Members of our team develop more than just the ability to ski extremely well — they also learn valuable life skills like discipline, focus and teamwork. Though being the speediest on the slopes often seems to be the priority.

Adult Clinics

Our adult programs are designed to advance your on-snow IQ, show you the mountain and ensure you have a great time doing it. Classes run for three consecutive Wednesdays or Fridays beginning January 22, 2020 and ending February 07. They include a two-hour group lesson each day and a luncheon on the final day and are broken into 2 distinct skill sets Intermediate and Advanced-Intermediate to ensure you are in a group that suits you.
