As of March 12th, 2017 we are no longer offering lessons. See you next season!
First Run Package
A one day, two hour lesson program which will teach you the very basics on your first day. This lesson will take place on flat and very gentle terrain. Ask about using one of our new Burton Learn to Ride beginner snowboards! Please check-in at the SkiLink Desk ONE HOUR before the lesson begins. If you want just a lesson, it can be purchased at the Learning Center.
3-Week Beginner Sessions
A progressive learn to snowboard program that includes 3 lessons on 3 consecutive weekend days. Students are placed into small groups on the first day then coached by the same instructor for 3 weeks in a row. The 3 week session program is simply the best program to learn how to snowboard the right way. Lessons are two hours each week.
A fun and unique lesson experience which combines women, snowboarding, wine, and local cheese (donated by Ferndale Market ferndalemarketonline.com)! This program is available for women only age 21 and older. The snowboard lesson is 1:15pm - 4pm; wine, cheese, and socializing immediately follows. Space is Limited!
Women can now register for two options based on their ability. There is a Beginner Group for women who have never snowboarded before. The Advanced Beginner Group is for those who have snowboarded once or twice and want to gain more confidence on the green runs.
