Free Lessons for First Timers

The Frequent Sliders Club was created for first-time skiers and snowboarders only (ages 7 and older), and it offers first-timers a FREE lesson with the purchase of one full-day, full-price lift ticket (this offer is non-transferrable and may not be combined with free or discount lift tickets or select specials. See below for details).


What Frequent Sliders Learn

Frequent Sliders Club lessons are designed specifically for adults, teens and kids (ages 7 and older) who have never been on the slopes, and they address important fundamentals including how to stop, how to turn and how to get on and off the lift. (All Frequent Sliders Club students will learn on our newest lift, the Magic Carpet. To view a video about this lift, click here.)

Lesson Times

Half-day lessons begin at 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. and last two hours.

Full-day lessons begin at 10 a.m. with a one-hour lunch break at noon (no supervision is provided from 12:00-1:00 – parents, use this break to let your kids show you what they’ve learned!). Classes resume from 1:00-3:00.

The ski school desk is located in the first level of the main lodge. Please give yourself at least one hour prior to the lesson to purchase your lift ticket and pick up your rentals. We do not accept advance reservations at this time.
