School's back in session, so the last thing your teen wants is to feel like he's in class while he's on the slopes, right? Sun Valley's new Teen Adventure Program (T.A.P. for short) is a great way to help him improve his ski skills without landing you in detention. Teens choose from a variety of sessions, such as perfecting turns, off-piste skiing, terrain park tricks, moguls, racing and more. The half day (2.5 hour) group sessions are more like training with a coach than conventional lessons.
Cost is $80 for one session or $150 for two sessions. Morning sessions run from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and are free-form sessions based on the group's interests. Afternoon sessions run from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p,m. and follow a pre-set schedule (see below). Pricing does not include lift ticket or lunch. All session start at the River Run Lodge.
