Arrival Time

All customers (ages 7+) who pre-purchased rentals (or still need rentals) should skip the ticket lines in the Plaza and go directly to the Rental Shop upon arrival. We recommend that you arrive at the Rental Shop 1 hour before your lesson start time for midweek/non-peak (Monday – Friday) lessons, 1.5 hours on weekends (Saturday – Sunday) and 2 hours on peak periods (dates listed above). Please budget extra time to find a parking spot, get dressed, walk or take the tram from your car, and use the restroom before getting to the Rental Shop. Plan additional time and bring extra patience on snowy days and busy weekends. For afternoon lessons, please plan to arrive at the rental shop by 9:30 a.m. on weekends and peak days to ensure we have the appropriate size gear for you – after 9:30 a.m. we cannot guarantee all sizes will be available.

After you pick up your rentals and lesson ticket, please proceed to the lesson meeting area on the snow (look for the colored flags and signs near Lakeview chairlift) to meet the Ski & Ride Center staff and instructors about 10 to 15 minutes before your lesson start time.

Customers who already have their own ski/snowboard equipment can pick up their lesson tickets at the main Ticket Windows in the Plaza area.

Group Lesson Levels

Our staff will assist you in determining the correct level for you or your child, and evaluate at the beginning of the lesson to ensure you are in the proper level. Visit the Lesson Levels explained section for a description of all the levels offered.
