KSC/KMS First Turns Program

  • The KSC/KMS First Turns 4/5 year old ski day is for those who want to get a head start in an organized ski program and is based on the principles of the Future Star program.  Now that you’ve shown your little one your love of skiing, we’re here to help them fall in love with it in a friendly encouraging environment.  Participants will ski with a parent and KSC/KMS Coach.  The KSC/KMS Coach will work with families to ensure a perfect mix of fun, skill development, safety, skier etiquette and developing mountain management skills.  We ask that participants are able to comfortably ski all terrain on Ramshead in control and can safely stop when needed. 

If you are interested in participating in the First Turns Program please contact Alexis
