Sky Tavern is a learn to ski and snowboard program and ski area staffed by parents and other caring adults at a ski area just for kids.
Building Winter Athletes is partnering with Sky Tavern to get kids on the hill with Snow Ball Run 2013!
Hundreds of thousands of
kids have been taught skiing and snowboarding by parents and other adults at a
ski area open just for them. Sky Tavern
Ski Area is located off the Mt. Rose Highway, only 30 minutes from Reno. Every winter, the program operates weekends
with parents helping for a few hours a day, being the staff of the Sky Tavern
Ski Area. Some parents are instructors,
while others are in support roles like the cafeteria, lift lines or parking.
Kids are taught skiing
and snowboarding under the watchful eyes of our Professional Ski Instructors of
America (PSIA) and American Association of Snowboard Instructors (AASI)
volunteer Trainers. Lessons range from beginning to advanced levels. Instruction starts at age four for kids with
parents joining or age nine for kids wanting to be a part of our bus program
and continues through high school ages. And
yes, there are even lessons for Mom and Dad!
