Activities Based Training
What is Activities Based Training?
All students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade should report to Junior Ski and ride for their lessons and equipment (if needed). The staff there is trained to instruct younger students and they have smaller sized equipment.
On Wednesday-Fridays, never evers will be able to participate in station teaching located between the lesson meeting spot and jr ski and ride in order to develop the skills necessary to participate in traditional lessons. Never Evers, will be able to participate in station teaching that will be available during the first 3 weeks of the program from 3-6pm. This will allow never evers to go out immediately to instruction and learn the basics needed to progress to green trails. On Saturdays and Sundays never evers will be able to participate in regular line up lessons and may participate in as many as they want until they earn their green sticker.
Beginner skiers and boarders will be taken through a course located on the east alpha slope during their designated lessons. This course will assist in teaching basic skiing and snowboarding skills.
Intermediate skiers and boarders will be taken through various types of terrain in order to master blue level trails.
Advanced and Expert skiers and boarders will be taken through various types of terrain including but not limited to steeps, bumps, and progression park to assist in learning more difficult skiing and snowboarding skills during regular lesson times.
Proficiency Evaluation Procedures
In order to provide a safer and more enjoyable skiing environment for all Greek Peak skiers, a Proficiency Clinic (Progression Run) will be required for all school program participants.
Here’s how it works:
Parents will identify when registering their child online if they are a never ever, green (beginner), blue (intermediate), black (advanced), or double black (expert) skier or boarder. Never evers will not receive a leveled sticker. They will be required to participate in the station teaching until they are ready for green trails. Beginners will receive a green sticker, intermediates will receive a blue, advanced will receive their black stickers, and experts will receive a double black diamond sticker.
- A green circle sticker will enable the student to ski on the easy slopes, marked with a green circle, only.
- A blue square sticker will designate use of the easy slopes and the more difficult slopes, marked with a blue square.
- A black diamond sticker will allow the student to ski on any green, blue, including the most difficult slopes, marked with a black diamond.
- A double black diamond sticker will allow the student to ski on any green, blue, black, and double black diamond slope.
Students will be responsible for keeping their previous stickers. On this and each succeeding visit, no further clinics will be required (unless they seek to upgrade).
It is hoped that with the cooperation between the program advisors, chaperones, students, and Greek Peak, a safer skiing environment will be created with a minimum of inconvenience.
It has been proven that since the implementation of our sticker system there has been a heavy decline in injuries amongst program students.
Participants will earn their next level sticker during regular lesson times. Or if they choose to not take a lesson they can go to the regular group lesson line up and request a progression run. Progression runs are only available during the six week program.
