Why Choose Blizzard?
We believe that skiing and snowboarding are life-long activities the entire family can enjoy together. We provide opportunities for youth to enjoy an active, healthy Minnesota winter in a safe, fun environment. We not only teach skiing and snowboarding skills, but also independence, responsibility and time management, in an age-appropriate and engaging way. We connect youth from all over the Twin Cities to form lasting friendships and memories on the slopes. And mostly, we live up to our motto — safety, fun and learning!!
How it Works
Blizzard is a “traveling ski and snowboard school,” meaning we have over twenty bus stop locations around the Twin Cities and take all our members in Kindergarten through 12th grades to one of eight snowsports destinations each week to receive professional, adult instruction from Blizzard instructors. After your program registration, we offer the convenience of weekly trip reservations and a flexible pay-as-you go payment plan.
