Where do I drop off & pick up my child for their lesson? What time is drop off & pick up?
For Ridge Runners (group lessons for ages 7-12), drop off & pick up is at the Learning Center, located outside the main lodge next to the beginner slope.
If your child is in a Private lesson, their drop off & pick up location will be at the Learning Center outside of the main lodge regardless of age.
Please arrive at the pick up location 15 minutes prior to the end of your child’s lesson. If you have multiple children to pick up in different locations, let one of our ski school staff know.
Will my child ride the chairlift in their lesson?
Additionally, most smaller riders will need individual supervision when riding the chairlift for safety reasons. If you would like to submit a private lesson request, please click here.
