Lessons

Ski and snowboard lessons are available for all ages and abilities. If you are just starting out, we have the best beginner terrain around with our two easy to use carpet lifts and large Bunny Hills. And if you already know how to ski or snowboard, our certified and professional instructors will work with you to improve your skills on our more advanced runs and chairlifts.

Age groups

Share the magic of skiing with your child and join our Parents and Tots program for 3 and 4 year olds. This one-hour class is offered for three consecutive Sunday or Monday afternoons and is designed to introduce your child to the sport of skiing or snowboarding with their favorite teacher ... you! Of course, we will also have one of our professional instructors with the class to help guide you. One parent must accompany every tot and the parent should be at a blue level of skiing or snowboarding. Parents can either bring their own equipment or rent ours for $42 for the three lesson session.

Parents and Tots classes are available on three consecutive Sundays from 1:45pm to 2:45pm or Mondays from 1pm to 2pm.

Our Mogul Mites and Meisters ski program is for children aged 5 and 6 years old of all abilities; from never ever skiied to already a whiz on the chairlift. Most classes begin on our large Bunny Hill with our two easy-to-use carpet lifts.

It is a 60 minute class and you can register in as many one-day classes as you wish throughout the winter.

Mogul Meisters is for advanced 5 and 6 year olds who are ready for the chairlift or are already using the chairlift. Class sizes for Mogul Meisters are a maximum of two children since one instructor can only ride the quad chair with up to two children. Note that if your child is not ready for the chairlift and the ski runs off of the chairlift, they should be registered in the Mogul Mites class.

There is also a two lesson program available over the Teachers Convention.

Lift tickets are only $18 while ski or snowboard rentals are also only $18. And best of all, the lift ticket and rentals are good for the whole day and for all lifts. Pick yours up at reception when you get your kids lesson ticket. Note that parent tickets are for Mom and/or Dad only and not for other family members.
