The Operation SnowSports Experience

YES Kids begin their Operation SnowSports Adventure in the YES office and rental shop the week before their first trip. YES’s interactive orientation teaches everyone how to stay warm, dry, and safe on the slopes. Then youth are teamed up with a volunteer navigator who leads them through the exciting ski or snowboard fitting process where they learn how to independently put on and carry their equipment all by themselves. On trip day, youth arrive at the YES office early in the morning to meet instructors and classmates. At the mountain, youth participate in a morning lesson, break for lunch, and ski or snowboard all afternoon. The return bus ride is a time to relax with new friends, reflect on the challenges they have overcome and dream about their next YES Adventure!
