*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.

And it no doubt why. You guys are rad skiers and snowboarders. Some of the best talent in the city can be found in your hood!

 

On Saturdays and Sundays we stop at the Thornhill Woods Public School around 7:45 am, picking up campers and taking them up to Mount St. Louis Moonstone. The bus ride is awesome: good company and sweet videos to get you stoked. We ride on coach busses from the Ontario Motor Coach Association. Buses are equipped with washrooms, and television screens.

Accessible Skiing and Snowboarding Options for Kids in Toronto’s Junction Neighbourhood:

Amidst the neighbourhood coffee shops, community parks, children’s playgrounds, leisurely wading pools, and locally-run ice rinks, the Junction certainly has brought its own personal touch to Toronto’s West side. This small town ambience is welcomed in the buzzing big city.

Junction.Toronto.GTA_.Ski_.Snowboard.Evolve

 

Whether you’re a true junctionite from the triangle itself, or whether you’re living on the brink between the big city and this homey neighborhood, either way you know that this area caters to the outdoorsy type.

 

With the iconic High Park as your very own backyard and the West Toronto Bike Path as your commuting line of choice, it’s no doubt that families of the junction like to get outdoors.

 

Evolve Snow Camps kept this in mind when planning out our bus routes for this upcoming season. Campers attending Evolve Ski and Snowboard Camps can join us at Mont Saint Louis Moonstone on Saturdays and Sundays, while parents don’t even have to think about the commute to the ski hill.

 

The Evolve Snow Camps bus picks up and drops off at Annette Street Public School, by the High Park area right in the Junction. The bus continues along to Mont Saint Louis Moonstone, where campers enjoy a day of friends, fun, and outdoor activity.

Once at the hill, skiers and snowboarders learn the fundamentals of these snow sports. Evolve Campers climb their way to advanced and freestyle levels in no time.

Skiers have the option of beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels for lessons. Or else, they can choose YOLO or Freestyle classes for intermediate/advanced if they are interested in a more freestyle take of the hill. Snowboarders as well get to choose between beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels for regular lessons. And, they can also opt for more free-riding choices in our YOLO and Freestyle Programs.
