Program: Ministars
Age Range: 4 - 6 years

Description: Ministars is an innovative program that teaches your children to enjoy the sports of skiing and snowboarding in a safe, fun and educational environment. Participation in snow sports can be a lifelong family activity that promotes independence, strengthens family ties and celebrates the outdoors. Since skiing and snowboarding can also be lifelong personal activities, we at Ministars invite you to relax knowing that our staff will make every effort to ensure that your child's experiences in snow sports will be safe, enjoyable, and positive. While your kids benefit from ski and snowboard clinics designed just for them, you will have some personal time to embrace all that Killington has to offer. First timers and beginners will have the opportunity to ski and play. They alternate between being out in small groups with their coaches and participating in specially designed activities with our indoor/outdoor snow sports activity staff. This way, beginners get more personal time practicing the basics. Skiers & riders who can already link turns and control their speed on green terrain will be on the mountain with their coaches the entire lesson time.

Ministars & Lowriders meet at our Rams Head Family Center. Rams Head caters to all your family needs with a retail shop specializing in children's wear, rentals for all ages, tickets sales, cafeteria and child care. Rams Head features an extensive trail network of novice and intermediate terrain that lets beginners get their start, while more advanced skiers and riders can cut it up. All these thrills are serviced by two Magic Carpets, two handle-tows and a high speed quad chairlift, which provides quick access to the rest of the mountain. There are also apr s-ski midweek activities including the popular Ice Cream Sundae Party, a Magic Show and a Puppet Show - and they're all absolutely free! In short, kids have a place all their own in Ministars at the Rams Head Lodge.
