PHAST Kids Program


Powderhorn Adventure Snowsports Training (PHAST) kids program is a great way to get children involved in snowsports early! This program is perfect for Boy Scout/ Girl Scout groups, church youth groups, school groups, and home school programs. Designed for children's groups of ten (10) or more, in grades three –eighth, our PHAST program will meet each child at their ability level in skiing or snowboarding and take them to the next level.

The PHAST program is an extremely affordable program. Each participant will receive a full or half day lesson, rentals, a lift ticket and a helmet rental* with their PHAST program purchase.

For more information, or to book your group, email the Ski and Ride Center at, or call 970-268-5700 ext. 2080.
