Adult Programs


In the spirit of "never too old to learn" we have designed specialty programs tailored to those young at heart. Whether you are new to the area and looking to meet new ski buddies or are a long time local looking to broaden your horizons these programs are designed to maximize your time on on the slopes and do it in style.

Ladies Day and Freeride Fridays programs are multi week lesson programs that our pros have created to build your confidence, learn new skills (or break old habits) and then break it all down over a gourmet lunch.
The Powderhound Experience will satiate even the hungriest of powder hounds. Whether you are looking to start cat/heli skiing or step up your game on those big powder days this program has been created to enhance your powder skiing experience.


We also have 2 mountain tour programs, they can be found HERE.
