Sky Tavern offers a variety of progressive terrain parks. Our main terrain park is located near the top of the mountain, tucked away in its own area. It is next to the Mountain Cafe, equipped with a stereo system, and attracts some of the coolest skiers and snowboarders in the area. This creates a fun and progressive atmosphere unlike any other resort. Starting off small and working your way up is the key to freestyle terrain. Our parks are designed by Shawn Clawson, who knows firsthand what it takes to make a safe, progressive, and quality terrain park. He has a decade of riding experience and has competed at national and international events in North America and Europe.
As members of the Tahoe League Race Series and USSA Far West, kids learn to carve gates. Our group has produced a number of amazing champions, with more on the way. Traveling to other resorts is necessary to compete in the Tahoe League. The Race Team is available to students on both Saturday and Sunday under the following guidelines:
Sky Tavern offers an adaptive ski school for children (ages 5-18 and older students by approval) with physical and cognitive disabilities. Specially trained staff is available to help these kids experience the thrill of winter sports using specialized equipment. Participation in a safe environment empowers those who in turn gain confidence for outdoor recreation.
Sky Tavern is determined to make our facility as adaptive-friendly as possible which in turn enriches everyone’s experience. These kids are an inspiration to everyone on the mountain.
Please contact us at 775.323.5125 or email@example.com to learn more about the adaptive program.
Children must be at least a Level 6 skier or snowboarder. Junior Instructors attend mandatory pre-season orientation and clinics, obtain approval from director, and are fully trained before being allowed to instruct. Initially, they shadow other instructors before being given a class of their own. Kids learn really well from their peers, and Junior Instructors learn responsibility and experience a great amount of personal growth so much by having this responsibility through this excellent program.
