DROP-IN

Drop-In Groups • $65*

Use our Lesson Request Form to request your lesson.

MOMMY/DADDY & ME

Mommy/Daddy & Me • $300*

This 4-week ski program is for ages 4-6 and one parent or guardian. Lessons are offered Friday afternoons or all-day Sundays in January and February. Choose the same day and time for 4 consecutive weeks. Lessons are 1-hour in length.

Parent/guardian will be counted on to assist their kids getting back onto their skis, getting up the rope tow/Poma and to notice when it’s time for a snack/bathroom break. The major benefit of this program for the adult is to absorb the instructional language and techniques to use to support your child long after the program is over.

NOTE: Parent/guardian must have prior experience and be able to proficiently ski and ride a lift at the same level as their child. If the child has no experience, the parent must be able to (at minumum) ski independently on the rope tow.

Each session consists of 4 one-hour lessons on consecutive weeks. The fee for one adult and one child is $229.*

* Lift tickets are free for ages 6 and under. Parent/Guardian will receive a free rope tow ticket or be able to purchase a discounted Poma/Chair ticket on lesson days when the child is using advanced lifts.

WOLF PACK

The Wolf Pack is a multi-week program for all levels of skiers/snowboarders ages 7-17.

This program is designed to help each student progress to the next level using controlled skiing/riding with the intention of building confidence to take on the entire mountain. Recruit friends and family to ensure there is a group for you. Students will be grouped according to ability. Minimum group size is 3.

Lessons are offered for 1-1.5 hours depending on class size with the option to sign up for 6- or 4-week sessions. Lessons will build off of the previous week so be sure to attend each session in order to stay in sync with the group. Make-up sessions will not be offered.
