Here are some tips for those of you First Timers interested in taking a ski or ride lesson!
Times: Group ½ day lessons: AM Lesson 10:00-12:30 PM Lesson: 1:30-4:00
Give yourself an hour to get your equipment and fill out paperwork. During peak season, please give yourself an hour and a half. This will give you plenty of time to get organized and get to your lesson on time.
Full Day Beginner Adventure lessons for the First Time skier or rider are from 10:00-4:00 with lunch break 12:30-1:30 (lunch is not included in the lesson, but there are many places to eat around the base area)
Meeting Place: Group lessons meet at the base area between the Red Lady Lift and the Silver Queen Lift. Look for the tall, green “Ski and Ride School” flags
What to Bring:
- Your lift ticket (try to find a place other than the main zipper on your jacket to attach it so it doesn’t hit you in the face)
- Lesson ticket – You will give your lesson ticket to your instructor at the beginning of the lesson
- Protective Eye Wear – Goggles, sunglasses, etc.
- Hat, gloves, neck gator/buff
What to Wear: Remember to dress in layers. Although it may be warm in the beginning area, the temperature will drop as you travel up the mountain. Drink plenty of water, eat a good breakfast, and be ready to have some fun!
