Winter Fun with Youth Development

 Members of our Youth Development Program in Cimarron are back on the slopes at Afton Alps Ski Resort this winter with Youth Advantage and Snowboard Outreach Society (SOS)’s Learn to Ride (LTR) program.

The LTR five-day program allows youth to learn how to downhill ski or snowboard while also focusing on core values including courage, discipline, integrity, wisdom, compassion, and humility. The participants are put into different groups depending on their experience levels and get to learn a new skill in a positive environment with their peers each week.

We have been fortunate to be able to provide these experiences for our Youth in Cimarron to further their knowledge and skills both physically and mentally. Learning to ski and snowboard can be a time and money constraint for many families as gear and tickets can be expensive. Youth received equipment, dinner, and winter clothes for their lessons.
