Grizzly Cub Kids Lessons

The Snowbasin Snowsports Learning Center inspires children to actively learn and enjoy skiing in a fun and safe environment. Children are matched with dedicated instructors who tailor their lessons around the needs and abilities of each student. Each child learns the basic fundamentals through well-developed activities that are fun, exciting and adventurous.

Our Facilities

Your 4, 5 and 6 year old child’s first experience is in Snowbasin’s Wildflower Meadow; a large fenced area with a gentle slope, which allows children to first experience the mountain environment away from the busy slopes. Here children orient themselves to the motions of skiing by walking and playing in their skis and boots. 

After conquering Wildflower Meadow, children move on to progressively more challenging terrain on Powder Puff Express Magic Carpet and the Littlecat beginner’s chair lift.

Grizzly Den is located in Snowbasin's Grizzly Center, and is the center of the Snowbasin Children's Program. Here parents and children register for lessons and meet their instructor. The children also eat lunch here.

Our Legend

The legend of the kind grizzly bear named Old Ephraim, still lives today. He and his friends, the Logan Canyon animals, teach your children how to ski.

  • Light-footed Daisy Deer teaches us from the very beginning to walk in our ski boots and make tracks in the snow with our skis.
  • Surefooted Robbie Ram shows us how to climb making "V" tracks and "number 11" tracks to get up the small hills in Wildflower Meadow.
  • Betsy Bobcat giggles and plays with us as we slide down the little hills and learn to stop safely.
  • Ryan Rabbit hops and turns quickly, helping us practice until we can turn on steeper slopes.

Lesson Rates

Ages 4, 5 & 6 - Includes ski free pass - Rentals not included.
Check-in minimum of 30 minutes prior to lesson time.

What Else Should Parents Know?

  • Be on time. Plan to arrive at least 30 to 40 minutes prior to your lesson time. You need enough time to check in, secure your ski school ticketing, help your children dress, and check them in with the Children’s Director.
  • Bring your children directly to the Children's Center to sign-in and pay for their lesson.
  • Dress warm and be prepared for varying conditions.
  • Children must have goggles or sunglasses, skiing is a lot more fun with them.
  • Your child should wear sun protection, even on a cloudy day-the sun’s UV rays will damage unprotected skin.
  • Label boots, skis, goggles and gloves with your child’s name.
  • Establish a meeting place after the lesson.
  • Give your child a note with your cell phone number and other contact.
  • Ski helmets are recommended (For more information about ski helmets visit www.lidsonkids.org).
