2021 Day School Ski & Ride Program
New this season, we are offering a Day school Program in a seven-week session format. We have expanded these offerings to include skiing, snowboarding, and the terrain park to help spread people out. Class sizes will max out at 6 students per instructor, allowing for the group to have more space when working through different progressions and riding the lift(s). With lessons lasting an hour and a half, face coverings will be expected to be worn while inside, during the lesson and when social distancing is not possible. Also built into this package is a bonus make-up day. Should the ski area not be operating on any of the program nights listed, this bonus date is listed in red at the end of the seven weeks. If a make-up day is not utilized during the program, the date in red will be available as an additional afternoon session to showcase learned skills.
You must register for this program online. No walk ins will be accepted. Deadline for registration is January 2, 2021. All Day School sessions are from 1:30PM to 3:00pm. Also, once a discipline is picked, it must be followed until the end of that session and once a program day is picked, there are no substitutions.
