Kids Clubs / Ski School

Fernie Wees Club (Ages 4-5)

In our Wees Club, we build on the foundation that was built in the Little Rippers program, and introduce the kids to a social sport environment with small groups of 2 kids to one coach.  Our energetic coaches use games and guided discovery to continue to develop the fundamentals of skiing necessary to progress their individual skiing. They will start to explore more of what the mountain has to offer, in a safe, semi private condensed 2 hour approach.
