Get Skiing/Get Snowboarding, Lessons for First-Timers.

Please note, our Snowsports School, including Get Skiing and Snowboarding, is closed for the season. Thanks for a great winter!

Get Skiing/Get Snowboarding is our premier group program for first-time skiers and snowboarders, or beginners with very little experience. Packages include user-friendly short shaped skis, or a Burton LTR snowboard, boots & helmet, a lower mountain lift ticket and a lesson taught by a special program instructor in a relaxed setting. Our beginner area is specially designed for Terrain Based Learning  - your instructor will guide you through carefully crafted terrain features that will speed up your success, and keep the fun level high. If you've never been on snow before, or you have, but aren't yet confident on Green terrain, then Get Skiing/Snowboarding is for you!

Get Skiing/Snowboarding
