Professional Ski Instruction is provided by a select group of ski and snowboard instructors from Sierra-at-Tahoe and Mountain High. Coaches are each assigned to a class of 8-10 participants based on age and ability for the 5 camp sessions. We require that participants remain with their instructor at all times; however, the coaches are experienced at finding the right balance between technical instruction, free skiing/riding and fast-paced fun on the slopes to ensure that everyone is having a good time AND learning plenty!
Volunteer chaperones (parents, teachers and recreation leaders) escort participants to and from the resort on our luxury charter motor coaches to ensure a smooth ride, pre-arrival preparation and a good time. Additional support staff and supervisors are also on location at the resort to oversee base facility operations, on-snow group placement and mountain safety. Participants are always under the supervision of volunteer chaperones, resort instructors and/or Blue Angels staff.
Lunch is provided each program day by outside vendors and local restaurants. Snacks and drinks are also provided throughout the day at our slope-side “hydration station”. Participants provide their own snacks for the bus ride, as we do not serve food or drinks on the ride to or from the mountain.
Orientation meetings prepare both parent and child for the 5 Saturday ski and snowboard camp. Proper preparation helps each participant reach his or her fullest potential on the slopes, as well as sets proper expectations for participants and parents alike. As such, we do require participants and a parent or legal guardian to attend one of our orientation meetings. Meetings are held in each region in December and January. New participant meetings take about 30-45 minutes, while returning participants can complete the process in 10-15 minutes. We review the Program Guide, fit and distribute Bern helmets and answer questions. Click on the links below for the orientation schedule in your region.
All equipment (except helmet) must be obtained prior to each camp session. Special ski and snowboard packages are available to Blue Angel participants to purchase through Level 9 and other participating locations. Rental and leasing options are also offered in both regions. Visit Southern California or Northern California for more info.
Bus locations (referred to as “Sessions”) are located throughout Southern California and the Bay Area to transport participants to our home resorts, Sierra-at-Tahoe and Mountain High. Our transportation partners are Lux Bus America, Transportation Charter Services and Sun Diego Charter Company. These select companies operate under the highest safety standards for driver training and vehicle maintenance. Their buses and are equipped with restrooms, reclining seats, on-board entertainment systems, GPS tracking and Wi-Fi.
Our mission is to provide positive snow-riding experiences for youth that will enhance their personal and social growth. Blue Angel Snow fosters this development through five consecutive Saturday ski and snowboard camps for kids, teaching fundamental skills to all levels in a supportive, non-competitive environment.
