School Groups

The Ski/Snowboard 5 and 8 Week Program – The program is geared toward creating a socially interactive and safe learning environment. Not only will your students learn about participating in a healthy outdoor activity, they will also learn the importance of meeting challenges, responsibility, setting and achieving goals. This program helps to build individual confidence and positive group interaction.  This program was originally designed for school groups of 15 or more as a learn to ski and snow board program.  The program allows schools to visit the resort once a week for 5 or 8 weeks for an evening of skiing or riding with school mates and staff. The popularity of the program with both students and staff has allowed it to become a tradition at many schools. Some have offered this to their students for 20 plus years. Today it is our most popular program and it is open to any organized group of 15 or more participants that want to make skiing and riding a weekly activity. Simply put… there isn’t a better program out there.

What’s Included?

  • A full mountain lift ticket, valid from 3pm– 10pm
  • All necessary Ski Rental equipment (boots, ski’s, & poles) **snowboards are available for an additional fee**
  • A helmet for each participant 
  • A 90 minute group lesson by a Professional Ski Instructor during each visit.

How the program works?

Each session will begin with a 90 minute group lesson by one of our ski/board school professionals. Lessons are conducted in our custom designed and dedicated teaching area known as “Almost Heaven”.  In this area students will learn and practice the basics. This area is used exclusively for beginners. After everyone is comfortable on their gear, we move on to one of our beginner trails which are gently sloping and easily accessible.
