Know Before You Go

Planning ahead minimizes pre-lesson stress levels and ensures that all students gain the maximum benefit of their ski or snowboard lesson. Our SnowSports Academy desk staff strives to determine the best possible lesson for each student and takes extra time to make sure each student's equipment fits and functions properly to make sure every lesson starts and ends on a positive note.

Snowboard & Ski Lesson Arrival Times?

All SnowSports Academy activities begin promptly at their designated times. Students, including those that have pre-registered, must check-in at the SnowSports Academy Desk a minimum of 30 minutes prior your scheduled meeting time. Due to the number of skiers/boarders enrolled in activities, we are not able to accommodate late arrivals nor will refunds be issued for late arrivals.

Should I make ski or snowboard lesson reservations in advance?

Advanced reservations are recommended throughout the winter season; especially during weekends, the Christmas holiday period, Martin Luther King weekend and President's Day week. Phone reservations are available every day from 8:30am to 4:30pm. All products are subject to availability and may sell out at any time.

When should I get my rental equipment?

It is important that you arrive to your lesson with your snowboarding or ski equipment ready to go. This will ensure that your lesson starts on time. Allow at least one hour to get your rental equipment and boot up before your lesson meeting time. Or save time and stress by reserving your equipment with Express Rental.
