Group Ski & Snowboard Package

Group Clinics (ages 15+) are offered for skiers and snowboarders with ability levels ranging from beginner to expert terrain. This program is designed for participants who already have a lift ticket and equipment, and are just interested in improving their on-snow experience.

Group clinics are divided into three levels:

  • Green clinics are for beginner abilities and will help you build your confidence and skills on Green/beginner terrain as you learn to smoothly link turns and control your speed.

  • Blue clinics are designed to introduce you to Blue/intermediate terrain. Focus is on development of early weight transfer and a more efficient parallel turn. A specialty "Introduction to Bumps" clinic is also available daily.

  • Black clinics are for advanced skiers and snowboarders and are designed to bring you to the skill level of the coach. Focus is on creating a smoother, quicker turn and making your lower body active while quieting your upper body.
