Wilmot Mountain's Winter Wonderland is a ski-play area for children ages 4 to 9 years old. Winter Wonderland incorporates games with ski fundamentals that teach balance and build confidence. Specially trained instructors closely supervise the activities. Parents are free to pursue their own fun, confident that their children are learning the basics in a fun safe environment.
We have four fun-filled programs available for all levels of learning:
Winter Wonderland Terrain Garden
Children are introduced to their skis and all the ways they can move on the snow! They explore balance, shuffling, walking, sliding, turning and stopping.
Winter Wonderland Surface Lift (Rope Tow) Area
Children learn to take their ski moving skills to the next level. They focus on linked turns, speed control, stopping and skier safety . . . everything they need to get to the top of the chairlift!
Winter Wonderland Cruisers
Look at us Cruise this mountain! The Cruisers have a great time putting mileage on those skis and learning. They improve linked turns, turn shape, turn refinement, speed control and focus on skier safety. There are 3 levels of Cruisers available based on skier ability. All Cruisers must be able to link turns at a controlled speed on the rope tow runs before moving to the chairlift.
The Mighty Mites program is open to young skiers who are able to ride the chairlift on their own, ski all terrain at Wilmot, and are ready for a skiing adventure! Team members will improve their skiing skills through all mountain skiing and appropriate race training. The Mighty Mites program will:
· Sundays only
· Consist of 6 Full-Days ( AM & PM Sessions )
· With two make up sessions weather permitting
Please register early at the Winter Wonderland counter next to the Ski School Desk in the main lodge. We recommend you register at least 60-90 minutes before your class begins. No registrations will be accepted later than a half hour before the class begins!
