Learn to use your equipment
in a warm, comfortable setting. Discover the basics
of stopping, turning, and more in preparation
for a fun day in the snow.
In the first lesson, beginners will become familiar with equipment, learn to
stop, control speed, balance, edge control, and more by skiing or snowboarding, usually
about 5-10 times, from the top to the bottom of our stationary carpeted slope.
In the second lesson, most beginners are ready to go onto the revolving carpet
and further the skills they started to develop in the first lesson, AND learn to turn left
Most people take the first two lessons together, as in the same hour, continuing
on with the second lesson right after the first one. Each 25 minute lesson thereafter on
our revolving carpet simulates a full day of exercise on the slope.
If you understand the basics of skiing
or snowboarding, our lessons will help you develop the skills necessary to become more
advanced. Learn to carve turns with a quiet upper body, which will help you to be more
efficient, use less energy and have better control.
Skiers - try our ELAN PSX Shaped Skis: learn the subtle differences in technique
using shaped skis requires and learn why most skiers love the feeling of carving turns on
Experienced skiers will improve and
fine-tune existing skills. Get a great work-out with exercises for bumps, steeps, powder
and racing. Top racers use the revolving carpet to hone their edge sensitivity, improve
muscle memory, and to develop "quick feet" for racing. Use the same specific
muscles and motions as skiing and snowboarding.
All prices listed are per person and per sport.
We accept payment in cash or check. We do not accept credit or debit cards. Instructor gratuity not included.

|3 Lesson Program
|5 Lesson Program
A program of
customized learning sessions is a great way to
prepare for a fun vacation! We teach
everyone with Private Instruction. Our
lesson programs have helped many people to get on
and off the beginner's hill quickly, and to
enjoy the top of the mountain in their first days
on the snow. We work with you on your total
technique to help you master a higher skill level.
We recommend a 5 lesson program for most people if you really want to learn to ski or snowboard and create some good habits that will be more likely to transfer to the snow when you get there. If you don't have the time or budget for 5 lessons, 3 is the next best way to go. Even 1 or 2 lessons is better than none and will help you to enjoy your first day on the snow each year.

Pre-Season Conditioning Exercise
Give a gift certificate of Adventure!
Around 5 years after we began teaching
on the revolving carpet in 1977, some of the instructors and management at the local
mountain resorts started noticing how much easier it was for people who learned on our
revolving carpet to make their first turns on real snow, and how fast our students
progressed. Some of the local mountains began offering incentives to learn on our carpet,
and then ski or snowboard at a discounted price, and sometimes almost FREE, at their
