Instructor giving ski lessons to children.

Christmas Ski School


This popular weekend program offers ski and snowboard lessons for beginners. To join the fun, preregister at the Mont Ripley ticket counter or by filling out the form available online and returning it. The two days during the holiday break consist of lessons from 10:30 a.m. until noon and 1 p.m. until 2:30 p.m. each of the two days. Students are split into groups based on age and ability and lessons are customized for their skill level. Come early on lesson days and start at the ticket counter to get your special daily lift ticket (be sure to stop by even if you have a season pass!). If needed, head down to the rental shop for your equipment next. Then meet your instructor and the rest of the class outside at the "Ski School Meets Here" sign.

The program cost includes lessons, lift tickets and rental equipment. Save $5 if you have your own equipment and another $5 if you have a season pass. You can purchase lunch at the Huski Cafe or bring your own.
