Our Mountain Masters seasonal program is designed to introduce and develop the skills necessary for a lifetime of SnowSports fun. This program develops all-mountain skills in a non-competitive environment focusing on SAFETY, FUN and LEARNING while building friendships and confidence for lifelong fun on the slopes. Skiers are grouped according to age and ability and are coached by PSIA/AASI trained and qualified instructors. (Participants choose Friday or Sunday program).

Why Choose Mountain Masters?

Mountain Masters is an excellent feeder program to our seasonal race program; Northern Michigan Ski Academy (NMSA).  The NMSA program has a competitive racing component as the foundation for their on-snow experience.  Mountain Masters is the perfect program to introduce your child to snow sports as they will be taught by PSIA/AASI trained instructors in small group classes.  The hallmark for our instructional programs is “Safety, Fun, and Learning” and your child will learn proper fundamentals while meeting new friends and exploring the iconic terrain of The Highlands.  We look forward to having your child participate in our program this winter season!
