Dillon Jaycees

Little Skiers 2012

Little Skiers 2017

Little Skiers is a program that has been going on in Dillon for decades.  The Jaycees started this program to encourage families to get thier kids out skiing.  As times have changed, so has the equipment, and within the last 10 years, the Jaycees have added snowboarding to the program.


Students check out equipment for the season and are provided with transportation to Maverick Mountain just 45 miles from Dillon.  The students are also eqipped with lessons from the great instructing staff at Maverick for 5 Saturdays, and lunch at the ski hill.  On the last day of regular instruction, the students parade down the main run in front of the lodge for friends and family to see what they have accomplished.


This program teaches students a lifetime sport and gets them outside to enjoy all Montana has to offer.
