SnoBlasters/Trailblazers - DRIVE UP

A Meadows Tradition Since 1987

Ages 7 through 8th Grade - $379-$419*

The 2020/21 winter will certainly be different than those previous, but the SnoBlaster/Trailblazer tradition will carry on in a modified format. This season the SnoBlaster/Trailblazer program will run as a combined program. We are offering a full-day (4-hour lesson) option on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in January and February, along with Sundays in March. We also have a half-day (2-hour lesson) option on Saturday evenings in January and February. These 4-week sessions provide the opportunity for your child to ski or snowboard with the same instructor and group once a week for four weeks in a row; this format allows the instructor and students to build on the previous week each time they meet and provides an excellent environment for both skill development and fun with new friends. This winter, SnoBlasters/Trailblazers will be available for elementary and middle school students ages 7 through 8th grade. Each SnoBlaster/Trailblazer group will be formed based on similar ages and ability levels. Each full day of SnoBlasters/Trailblazers includes four hours of coaching from 9:30–11:30 AM, a break for lunch, then coaching again from 1–3 PM. Saturday evening SnoBlasters/Trailblazers will receive two hours of coaching from 4-6 PM. This is a popular program so sign up in advance for best pricing and availability.

SnoBlasters/Trailblazers will meet each day this season on the snow at the Youth Multi-Week Program Corral, located just off the South Lodge Deck. Morning check-in begins each day at 9 AM, afternoon check-in begins at 12:30 PM and evening check-in begins at 3:30. SnoBlaster/Trailblazer rentals can be picked up in the new Learning Center Programs Room, located on the main floor of the South Lodge.

* Lesson-Only Price – see add-on options for individualized package price.

Out of an abundance of caution, there will be no supervised lunch at this time. Instructors will return all students to the Youth Multi-Week Program Corral, located just off the South Lodge Deck, and release them to their parents/guardians for lunch. An area in the new Learning Center Programs Room, formerly the Children’s Learning Center in the South Lodge, will be reserved for students and parents to use (when allowed by state regulations). SnoBlaster/Trailblazer groups will reform back in the Youth Multi-Week Program Corral after the lunch break starting at 12:30 PM.

As part of our efforts to reduce the risk of exposure to our team members and our guests, we have suspended bus transportation for the SnoBlaster/Trailblazer program.

Reservations are required 48 hours prior to the first day of each SnoBlasters/Trailblazers session.
