Rippers & Riders is our After School “Learn to ski” and “Learn to snowboard” program. This program is ideal for children who want to learn to ski or snowboard and want to improve their technique becoming more proficient and confident. A great pathway for children aged 5-16 to kick start there snow passion.

Children get separated into groups based on age (where possible) and ability. Snowplanet uses a ratio of one instructor to every eight or nine children to ensure that every child receives adequate attention and instruction.

Rippers & Riders has a progression focus that is made up of 3 parts – fundamental skill, basic race and basic freestyle techniques. By creating this triangulation it introduces children to all areas of snow sports ensuring they leave as well rounded skiers and snowboarders. This also gives children a chance to see what interests them for future learning.
