Rippers Race Prep & Development Team

Rippers Race Prep & Development Team is beginner program for children aspiring to join the Hidden Valley Race Club or develop all mountain ski skills. Children age five and older are encouraged to take part in this eight week program. The Rippers Race Prep & Development Team will focus on skill development with some of the best coaches on the mountain. Lessons group kids of similar age and/or ability to maximize success and provide the appropriate lesson environment on the mountain. Coaches encourage improvement while nurturing confidence during the lesson.


Children enrolled in the Rippers Race Prep & Development Team program should be at least five years old, be able to stand up on their own, ride a chair lift and stop on green terrain. If the child does not meet these standards, their program fee will be used for Rippers Adventure Club or Private Lessons. Children participating in the Rippers Race Team Prep need to have their own equipment and pass/lift ticket. Participants in the Rippers Race Team Prep are given free entry into the Hidden Valley Open Cup events.
