This is a full evening of skiing or snowboarding, starting anytime after 3:30pm. Pre-booked Group beginner lessons are available for beginner students at either 4pm, 5pm, or 6pm so students can safely advance at their own pace. Private lessons may be reserved also with advance reservation and payment.
Please note that 2020-2021 season will have less indoor seating in the lodge to meet physical distancing requirements. Face coverings are required inside the lodge at all times until you are seated to eat/drink/warmup. If necessary and mandated by authorities, we may not be able to allow eating/drinking inside. Food and drinks will be available from our outside BarBQ and as Takeout from our cafeteria, and you may have to eat outside at a picnic table or in your car.
After School Club
Great for groups of students age 7+ who are avid skiers or who just want to get out on the hill on their free time. Students, teachers or parents can organize an after school club and get a super deal on lift tickets. No lesson required for After School Clubs but beginner lessons are available by advance reservation.
