Choosing the right Ski and Snowboard Program
As the winter rolls around we cant help to think about what our kids will be doing this coming winter. Choosing the right ski and snowboard program this winter can be a big challenge for many of us. The best way to choose the right program is to look to consider the following items.
The first challenge for choosing the right program is its proximity to home. There are various drop off programs through out the GTA, but the down fall to this is they sell out within minutes of being listed on line. The other issue is that local hills in the GTA do not have the same snow making capabilities as resorts like Mount St.Louis Moonstone.
If none of the local programs in your area work, you might want to look into bussing options like Evolve Snow Camps. Our program offers pick up locations all over the GTA including Markham, Thornhill, Beach, Missisauga, North York, Richmond Hill, King city and more.
Ski and Snowboard Lessons
When choosing the program make sure that the lessons are long enough. Programs that are private are usually 1-2 hours long, which does not give the kids a lot of time on the snow. Look for full day programs. More time on the snow means you will learn more!
Some programs offer a ski and snowboard rental program. This is always a good options to consider, however you can also purchase in-expensive ski and snowboard equipment before the season starts.
Look for a program that suits your budget. Before you sign up consider the cost of buying outerwear, safety gear, skis or snowboards, goggles etc.
Winter is coming at Evolve Snow Camps
Although many of us do not want the summer to end, all of us at Evolve Snow Camps are starting to prepare. Last season was awesome, the snow held off and both ski and snowboard programs ran without a hitch. The level of progression at all regular and freestyle ski and snowboard camps was unbelievable.
For 2017 we have a few news things lined up including our new pick up locations in Richmond Hill, Aurora, Toronto Beaches, Thornhill, North York, East York and King City. We will be announcing the new pickup locations in early September.
The Evolve Snow Camps ASD program will be back in full force. Last year was our first year doing it and cant wait to be back at it.The Evolve ASD ski camp teaches youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder to learn to ski in a safe and supportive environment. The program is designed to be run in a group or individual setting depending on the needs of the skiers. Our lessons, meals and busing is fully supervised by professional support staff with a focus in dealing with behaviour. The Evolve ASD program is integrated into the main Evolve Snow Camps program at Mount St.Louis Moonstone.
