Mini Rippers is a fun introductory program for young riders to ski and snowboard with friends.

The program is taught using the development and learning program guidelines of the Canada Ski Instructors Alliance and the Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors.

To join Mini Rippers, your child must be able to ski all chairlift runs (including blue runs) in control and without stopping. Skiers must be able to ski without snowplowing (base stems OK) and Snowboarders must be able to turn and stop both ways.

Please note: Starting in 2019, Shames My Mountain Coop will run the Mini Rippers program, not the Shames Ski and Snowboard Club.
