How-To: Children's Boot Fitting & Sizing

Secrets For Success - Helpful Hints & Recommendations

Provide your child(ren) with:

  • A good pair of well-fitted, smooth (not bulky), over-the-calf ski socks.
  • Warm, waterproof gloves or mittens (we recommend mittens for small children).
  • Warm hat or better yet a helmet, new this year helmet included with all programs.

Snow pants or ski/snowboard pants are recommended, jeans are not.

Arrive early so you will not be rushed. We advise at least an hour before your lesson time.

Children should eat a good meal before checking in for their lesson.
