Join Telluride Academy for a fun alternative to SKI-PE 5. Half of our day together will be spent enjoying an outdoor activity. We'll look at the forecast each day to to decide if our outdoor actitivity will be in the morning or afternoon. We'll go on snowshoe hikes, spend one day learning how to Nordic Ski and maybe get in a few games of broomball. When its simply too cold to be outside we'll spend our non-climbing time in the gym playing games that build strength and keep the students moving.


The other half of the day will be spent on our School's brand new climbing wall. Every week during this introductory climbing program, students will cover basic indoor climbing skills, such as: climbing terminology and communication, top-rope and bouldering route completion, hold type identification, body movement, figure eight knot tying, top-rope belaying basics, and of course HAVE FUN! Every climbing session will end in an exciting climbing related group game! Students will be broken into Levels (Level 1: Recreational Climbing, Level 2: Development Squad) in this program in order to better help each student achieve their personal goals in climbing! 


Note: Please send your child daily with plenty of snacks, a water bottle, warm layers, and closed toed tennis shoes for their time on the wall and warm winter boots for our time outside.
