Discover Ski or Snowboard
Make your winters more bearable by learning to ski and snowboard. You’ll find it surprising how much you come to enjoy winter. For FIRST TIMERS ONLY, the DISCOVER PROGRAM is an easy and affordable way to see if skiing or riding is for you. We already know the answer to that question but we will patiently wait for you to come to that conclusion - and we know you will.
The DISCOVER PROGRAM is a 55 minute group lesson packaged with a 4 hour lift ticket and equipment rental (helmet included) at price you can’t refuse. Ages 6 to adult and is for both skiing or snowboarding. Reservations are required and we ask you to arrive at least an hour before your lesson to get ready.

Students with Special Needs and ‘Inclusion’ in Group Ski and Snowboard Lessons
We often receive requests from schools and families to accommodate children with various challenges in group lessons.
Although schools now routinely include students with significant behavioral or emotional problems that occasionally render them disruptive, special needs students may not do well in a group ski lesson.
Students with intellectual, emotional, or behavioral challenges learn better one-on-one in a private lesson setting.
Students with physical challenges, requiring an instructor with special adaptive training should consider booking private lessons with a CADS (Canadian Association of Disabled Skiers) certified instructor.
If you need to switch your child to private lessons, please speak to a reservation agent.
