Little Cubs

KIDS (4-5)

Little Cubs is structured to keep young skiers happy, engaged, and excited during their first years of skiing. Each group maintains a low student-to-instructor ratio, with a max of four students per instructor, allowing for individualized attention and instruction within a comfortable environment.

Skiers are split up into groups based on ability level during check-in. Breaks will be worked into the lesson if and when the group requires them,

We believe that each child should begin their lifetime affinity for skiing on a positive note. If a child is uncomfortable or unhappy on a particular day, they will not be forced to participate.

Children must be toilet-trained to participate in this program.

Choose from these 2-hour lesson times: 10am-12pm and 3-5pm

Award winning approach to Ski and Snowboard teaching

Terrain Based Learning™

Introducing the Terrain Based Learning™ Method at Alyeska Resort – a groundbreaking revolution in the snow industry that has garnered acclaim and recognition across the nation. This award-winning approach, trusted by some of the finest ski schools in the country, has now found its home at Alyeska. Terrain Based Learning™ transforms the way we teach skiing and snowboarding, creating an immersive and dynamic environment that enhances the learning experience. We are thrilled to be at the forefront of this innovation, making it accessible to our guests at Alyeska Resort, where the adventure of snow sports is redefined. Come and discover the future of skiing and snowboarding with us!

While on the slopes, you will see people using alpine skis, telemark skis, snowboards, and other snow play equipment such as snow skates, snow bikes and adaptive ski gear. You will see skiers of all levels – from beginners enjoying their first day on the slopes to expert skiers with years of experience. It is always your responsibility, regardless of the equipment used or the level of skier that you are, to be courteous to others and to be aware that skiing safely makes the ski slopes safer for all of us.

Alyeska is a large mountain with difficult and dangerous terrain and skiing and riding are dangerous sports.  We do our best to inform guests of the possible hazards associated with snow sports. We do our best to mark hazards and dangerous terrain appropriately. We also actively open and close certain areas of the mountain often due to Snow Safety considerations, ski conditions, or darkness

Our beginner ski zones and high skier traffic areas are important to us and we refer to these areas as “Slow” zones. We label them as such on our trail maps and with signs and banners as you ski through each of these areas. We encourage guests to ‘Go with the Flow’ in these areas, ski only as fast as the skier next to you. Our least favorite part of the job is to be the police on the mountain. We do our best to keep an eye on people skiing around to ensure everyone is skiing safely and within their limits.

Alyeska has set Enforcement Guidelines based on the Skier Responsibility Code and Mountain Safety Concerns for behavior on the mountain. When an individual crosses these lines, we have to step in and be the police, and we have no tolerance for unsafe behavior at Alyeska. We have a relationship with the Department of Natural Resources and due to this relationship we issue DNR citations to individuals in violations of certain rules. In addition to loss of lift privileges and fines we also require all ‘violators’ to take the Mountain Education Test, a tool used to help educate.
