Summer Guarantee to Ski or Ride
It's hard for beginners to know how many lesson they will need to be comfortable on the mountain. We are confident that in 6 hours (the equivalent of one, full day group lesson at a resort) we can get a never-ever skier or snowboarder to an intermediate ability level. This means that the skier or snowboarder can perform basic fundamental ski and snowboard techniques with proficiency. This, in turn, would enable the athlete to ski or ride on intermediate terrain (moderate blue runs) at a ski resort.
