Ski and Snowboard Lessons


UPDATE (3-14-19): Due to the rain and warm temps we have made the following changes to the weekend-
Snow tubing is now closed for the season.
Skiing and snowboarding hours are as follows:
Closed Friday.
Saturday 10 am to 6 pm with night rates all day long.
Sunday 11 am to 6 pm with night rates all day long.
We will still be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day without the $10 discount because night rates are a better deal.
Still a lot of snow on the ski slopes. Once the temps drop below freezing Thursday night and Friday night the groomers will be out giving you the best possible conditions.

Check out our webcam to see current conditions.

Mini Lessons for Skiing and Snowboarding

Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. We have designed our facility and programs for people just like you. You will learn more in one of our mini-lessons or paid private lessons than you will all day from your friends. Skiing and snowboarding is FUN and we want everyone to experience it.

Included with purchase of a lift ticket, we provide beginner mini lessons to skiers and snowboarders ages 7 and above. Lessons are offered every hour, on the hour- listen for the announcement over the PA at the rental building. Beginners under age 7 are welcome if accompanied by an adult, however, we strongly recommend that they take a one hour paid private lesson.

Everyone learns at a different pace. It is important to keep your expectations reasonable. This way both you and your children have a successful and rewarding day on the slopes. Some factors that can affect learning include your temperament (how open you are to new things), age, and physical ability. Both skiing and snowboarding take special skills that improve with practice over time. Ultimately, your expectations for you and your kids should focus on the fun and excitement of the overall experience.

All participants must sign an Indemnification Agreement/Liability Form. You may print the agreement to obtain required signatures prior to arrival.
