Fall Camps & Programs

Sky Tavern Partnership With
Skiing Is Believing!

PROMOTING, SUPPORTING, AND EASING ACCESS TO (SNOW) SPORTS

 

Fall 2021 activities at Sky Tavern starts now!
The Sky Tavern Junior Ski Program, the oldest and largest volunteer-staffed ski school in the country, since 1948 will continue its mountain summer legacy partnering with Skiing is Believing owned and operated by Meghan Ochs who will be running fall camps and programs at Sky Tavern. "This pairing of strength and vitality between us," said Yale Spina, Sky Tavern Board Chairman, "demonstrates our commitment to bring the very best summer programs to Sky Tavern."

A PARTNERSHIP LIKE NEVER BEFORE

Skiing is Believing, with a spark for variety and a passion for the sport will be running fall camps and programs at Sky Tavern, beloved local non-profit providing opportunities in snow sports in the Reno-Tahoe area since 1948. This is an invigorating collaboration as Sky Tavern's nearly 75 years of experience, know-how, and networks collide with the fresh, unconventional, and intersectional approach to sport provided by SIB. The partnership is an exciting opportunity for children, and adults, to experience the Sierras year-round and train to become more adept at tackling alpine terrain - whether on bike, board, skis or simply on foot.

This partnership is a tremendous opportunity to serve more children in the region. Fall programs are based on Sky Taverns' flagship sports of mountain biking, skiing, and snowboarding. Other sport and physical activities will occasionally be added to keep with the Skiing is Believing multi-sport approach. Please see our research page as to why this approach is beneficial.

NOTE: All registrants must turn in and complete all paperwork before the start of their program. Please make note of the age and equipment requirements, if any, for each program. Spots are limited. For more info, email SkyTavern@skiingisbelieving.org
