  • Children age 2-3 aren’t old enough to join this program, but we will gladly teach them in a private ski lesson.  However they need to be potty trained.
  • Make sure your child is dressed properly (an extra set of clothes is recommended).
  • Be sure your child is well nourished and hydrated before the lesson.
  • The So Puppies program is for 4 & 5 year olds ONLY - prepare older & younger siblings that they may not be together during the lesson to eliminate problems at the area.
