Learn to Ski or Ride Packages

Spend more time learning, and less time sweating the small stuff. That’s the simple but powerful idea behind our Learn to Ski or Ride Packages. With help from our talented coaches, you’ll start with the basics – like how to walk in ski boots or strap into a snowboard binding – before making your first turns. By focusing on the fundamentals, you’ll build the skills and confidence you’ll need to move up and explore the mountain.

Learn to Ski or Ride Packages are an excellent deal, and include everything you need to get started: A group lesson with other beginners, lift ticket*, and equipment rental. Full-day packages include a 5-hour group lesson, while half-day packages include a 2.5 hour group lesson.
