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.
