Learn to Ski At Evolve Camps

*CLICK HERE to learn more about our COVID-19 policies, and how we’ve adapted.

Evolve Snow Camps specializes in ski lessons, camps and coaching programs. Our programs run on Saturdays in January, February, and March. Programs include busing from various locations in Toronto, York Region, Mississauga, Thornhill, Richmond Hill and Barrie. We run our camps at the largest family-owned ski resort in Southern Ontario – Mount St. Louis-Moonstone (MSLM).

Lessons from Beginner to Advanced 

Evolve gives young skiers of all skill levels the opportunity to grow and train with Ontario’s best ski instructors. Our program operates for 8 weeks because our belief is that the best way to develop your skiing skills is through repetition.

Over the course of the 8-week program, our campers are placed in a group based on skill level, age and, in some cases, gender. We prefer to keep campers with the same coach for the duration of the winter where possible. However, we also move some campers to different groups as their skill level evolves over the course of the season.

Freestyle Ski Program 

For more advanced skiers, we provide the opportunity to join the freestyle program. This is where skiers learn freestyle techniques – from basic terrain park fundamentals to fine tuning the most technical tricks. Evolve Snow Camps coaches and staff work as a team to create a safe and fun experience for everyone involved.
