The focus is on fun, skill development and quality instruction. Camps are a great way to introduce your children to skiing and snowboarding. Our friendly and professional instructors design the camps to build confidence and set your children up for a lifetime of fun!  

Whether your children have never, ever put on a pair of skis or strapped on a snowboard, OR they are little skiwis or shredders OR they are ready to explore and discover more runs, the team at Vista Ridge Snow School is ready to help take your kid's skills to the next level.



For our youngest skiers, Snowbird lessons offer a smaller group size with dedicated instructors and a focus on having fun!   This is a 1 hour lesson with a goal to be at least 45 minutes on snow.  Riders will be evaluated and placed in a group with others who have similar abilities.
