Calling all little rippers aged between 7 and 12.
Rainbow Rippers is a ski only programme with the aim of building skills, exploring the mountain, having fun and making friends amongst our amazing Rainbow Ski community. It is 3 x three hour sessions of tuition.
LIMITED TO 18 SPACES
Date Range : Sunday 20th August for six weeks. So we can get our 3 sessions delivered in the best possible conditions, we have allowed for 6 weekends in case the field is closed/ conditions aren’t ideal. (We will give you a heads up a few days out and confirm the evening before if a session is not going to go ahead.)
Time: 9.20 -12.30
Meet at the clock/ski field map in front of Rentals at 9.20 ready to ski with plenty of warm clothing, your helmet, a named water bottle, a snack and your lift pass.
$240 for 3 sessions.
Your child MUST have a Youth lift pass for the day – this is not included in the cost
Rainbow Rippers branded T shirt $30 (optional) – please advise on size when booking.
Finish up with a shared kai family BBQ on the final Sunday at the Robert Lodge.
No, but with the Academy not running 2023, we have been fortunate in having 3 club members, who are also instructors, offer to run a similar programme to give kids and adults the opportunity to learn some skills and make some friends.
No, we will assess each skier and place them in appropriate group on the first Sunday. Some adjustment of the groups may be required. Note your child must be able to ride the T Bar to participate.
Sorry, at this stage we don’t have a snowboard instructor/ group.
No, we don’t have a race training group.
For Rippers we are planning to have 3 groups with a maximum of 6 in each group.
We will start on Sunday 20th August and run sessions for four weeks. If the weather or field closure is against us on any given Sunday, we will postpone lessons until the following week and so on.
We will check the weather forecast a few days out from each Sunday and advise tentatively if we will run Rippers by posting on the Rainbow FB page and emailing you. Please be sure to check each morning before you leave for Rainbow too that it is open. Often an overnight weather event can close the mountain with little notice.
Confirmation will be part of the Sunday am Facebook.
Ski field status and great snow and weather reports can be found on the Rainbow Ski Area website.
