Inside the new Camp Hale at Vail, ski school students will learn through the lens of 10th Mountain Division Soldiers who skied the mountain before Vail ’s founding. The program’s students, called Camp Hale Cadets, will learn about Vail Mountain’s partnership with the US Forest Service, how Vail Mountain employees create a safe mountain environment, alpine weather and conditions, types of machinery used on Vail Mountain, and how to safely conduct themselves in the alpine environment – including skiing and riding in the trees.
This learning space is designed to heighten students' mountain awareness, allowing them to more safely enjoy skiing and riding through an exploratory experience. This immersive indoor lesson experience will be tied to outdoor learning experiences within Vail's signature Children’s Adventure Zones.
Enjoying a fabulous meal at the end of a day on the mountain is a treat to be included in any ski vacation!
