This is the time to get out and get skiing with your family, friends, and community! We understand learning to ski as an adult can be intimidating, frustrating, or embarrassing. Our goal with this 4 week program is to remove these barriers that cause many adults to steer clear of skiing. Beginning before the official opening of the ski season, students get to learn the basics in a safe atmosphere among other adult first timers. MUST BE 18 OR OLDER.
