Learning to Ski is Easy

Whether its learning to Ski or Snowboard, we have easy to learn programs.

Step 1 – The Flats

In the Flats you’ll meet your instructor and fellow lesson participants. Here’s where you’ll get familiar with your equipment and the basic ranges of motion needed for your time on the snow.

Step 2 – The Mini-Pipe

In the Mini-Pipe you’ll get your first experience with sliding on snow. Here’s where you’ll learn to pump the terrain, steer and slide forward and backwards.

Step 3 – The Rollers

The Rollers are where you’ll get your first taste of what it’s like to experience the thrills of gravity. Here’s where you will gain confidence in sliding downhill while the gently rolling terrain helps to naturally control your speed.

Step 4 – The Banked Turns

Now you’re ready for your first turns. The subtle banking of these turns will gently help to redirect your skis or board through your first series of turns.

Step 5 – The Perfect Slope

After mastering the Banked Turns you’re ready to put it all together for yourself. On the Perfect Slope you’re in control. Here you’ll make your first unassisted turns and build the skills and confidence needed to head up the mountain to our Green terrain.
