Junior Seasonal Programs

We offer instruction for fifteen weekends including some days during the Christmas holiday week and February vacation week. Programs are designed for kids 4 thru 16 years old, who already ski or snowboard, starting at the lower intermediate level. We offer different programs geared toward certain age groups and within those groups, we might have different groups based on skill development and intensity level. Kids meet at the Junior Seasonal building by the Lower Meadows chairlift. 
 


Free Ride (FR)
A specialized group for 9–15yrs. old skiers who want to learn the fundamentals of freestyle along with solid all mountain skiing. Ski the glades and bumps, but also learn the basics of freestyle moves and how to safely apply them in our smallest parks. This group will have a limited number of participants and must meet an ability standard. 

Lil’ Grits Alpine (LG)
A program for 4–5yr. old skiers with a focus on mountain safety, developing fundamental skills and lots of indoor & outdoor fun! Kids must be able to ski lower intermediate terrain, like Valley Run, on their own. 

True Grits (TG)
A program designed for intermediate or above skiers, 6–12yrs. old. Offering alpine groups with options to telemark. Groups focus on honing the skills of being an all-mountain, all-condition skier. Drills and exercises compliment ever developing skills, while exploring as much of the mountain as those skills allow, including bumps, glades and an occasional run through our Nastar course. Options to try other snowsport disciplines will be offered throughout the season. Multiple groups will be formed on the basis of age, ability & intensity. 

Teen (T)
A program designed for teens, 13–16yrs. old, who are able to ski or ride all of Waterville Valley's terrain. Skiers, telemarkers and riders are together in a social atmosphere with all of their time on snow. Activities will be varied and take advantage of all the mountain challenges and conditions. Expect to explore every nook and cranny, hit every bump and find new lines in the glades. Maybe an occasional park session or a friendly race through the Nastar course. 

True Grits Snowboard (TGSB)
A program designed for intermediate or above riders, 6–12yrs old. Offering snowboard groups. Groups focus on honing the skills of being an all-mountain, all-condition rider. Drills and exercises compliment ever developing skills, while exploring as much of the mountain as those skills allow, including our small terrain parks, bumps and glades. Options to try other snowsport disciplines will be offered throughout the season. Multiple groups will be formed on the basis of age, ability & intensity. 

Race Focus (RF)
Nearing Capacity, please contact Pete Weber at pweber@waterville.com.
