BEGINNER PACKAGES – BEST VALUE!

1st Day Beginner Package
– Ski/Snowboard Ability Level A

This package is ideal for those who have never skied or snowboarded before. This package is designed for skiers and snowboarders ages 9 and older. Includes an all-day lift ticket to the Nova and Lynx Lifts (beginner lifts) and two hours of professional instruction (from 10 a.m. to noon OR 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.).  Courtesy Coaching is available to skiers and boarders when not in lessons.  Skiers will learn how to glide in a wedge and come to controlled stops, while snowboarders learn to heel-slip and stop. Upon acquiring these skills, students will then learn how to load and unload the beginner lifts and navigate green terrain. Does not include equipment rental.

1st Day Beginner Ski Package $90

1st Day Beginner Snowboard Package $100

2nd Day Beginner Package
– Ski/Snowboard Ability Level B/C

This package is designed as a follow-up to our 1st Day Beginner Package, although it is NOT a prerequisite. It is ideal for those who have skied/snowboarded at least once before. The 2nd Day Beginner Package serves as an introduction to parallel turns for skiers who can wedge stop and load/unload lifts in control. Snowboarders who can heel-slip and toe-slip and are able to get on and off the lifts, but need to work on linking turns are ideal candidates for this package. This package allows skiers/boarders to familiarize themselves with the mountain and explore more adventurous terrain. Includes an all-day lift ticket to the Nova, Lynx, Raven, Elma and Charity Lifts (which services most beginner and intermediate terrain) plus two hours of professional instruction (either morning or afternoon session). Does not include equipment rental. Ages 13 and up. Children ages 9 to 12 that are of this ability level should refer to Hot Shots. Lessons booked online must be picked up at the Ski School meeting sign located between the Nova and Bonanza Lifts.
