Sky Tavern runs a weekend only, eight week program to provide a safe and fun environment that fosters learning, family fun and a lifelong love of winter sports at as low a price as possible. Kids attend classes or advanced training every morning and have the afternoon to enjoy the mountain with free skiing.
Skiing and snowboarding are taught by volunteer trainers from the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) and American Association of Snowboard Instructors (AASI) organizations. Lessons range from beginning to highly advanced levels. Instruction starts at age four for kids with parents joining in, or at nine for kids wanting to come to the slopes on the bus program. Available instruction continues through high school ages. Moms and dads can take lessons as well.
Sky Tavern programs are offered for just about all kids, including those with disabilities. A key ingredient is parental involvement. Because volunteers essentially run the entire program, the cost is kept to a reasonable and affordable level.
For more information, call (775)323-5125 or go to the website. You can also visit Sky Tavern at 21130 Mt. Rose Highway. It's only a few miles up the hill and before you reach the Mt. Rose ski area.
