Ski Stars 1 Day
The goal of the program is to have a great time exploring Mission Ridge, learn new skills, and introduce participants to ski racing.

Minimum Requirements for Ski Stars Participants
Ski Stars Team members must be between the ages of 5 and 10, and be able to confidently ski Chair 4 (Castle/Easy Blue Runs). Your child must ski with comfort and control down Castle, making consistent turns and be able to stop when needed. If after the first day of the program the coaches think they are not quite ready for Ski Stars, they will recommend a Mission Ridge Ski School Program.
Ski Stars Team Members need 1 pair of skis, 1 pair of poles (optional), ski boots, a helmet, eye protection, and warm winter clothing.
Attendance: Parents must choose either Saturday OR Sunday and for the duration of the program, we are not able to accommodate changes mid-season. One make up day is available during the session but must be scheduled in advance.
Introduction to Racing:
As part of learning how to become a good all mountain skier Ski Stars are introduced to skiing around gates. In addition, Ski Stars provides race coaching for participants that are interested in racing at the Apple Invite and the Squirrel Cup held at Mission Ridge. The last day of Ski Stars will be a Ski Stars only race held on Saturday March 2, 2019 for both the Saturday and Sunday program.
