SkiJammers. Skijammers structures its core programs similar to a summer camp. The only difference being that our program is spread out over eight consecutive Saturdays in January and February. Skijammers and Boardjammers students are grouped into classes with others of similar age and experience. A class has the same instructor for the entire eight-week program. Students receive up to 15 instruction sessions during the eight-week season with classes meeting twice a day for two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon. Lunch provides more time for social interaction within the classes. The group setting provides great interactions with kids, builds student and instructor partnerships and offers a sense of belonging that is not easily found in other alpine programs. Skijammers offers a structured environment with minimal unsupervised time for students. Parents please note that our program does require students to be comfortable with some independence each Saturday.
