New to skiing or a snowboarding? Check out the Beginner's Magic™ program and the Wizard Ski Deck. The Wizard - an indoor ski and snowboard simulator - provides the safest, most enjoyable, and most comfortable way to experience and practice the sensation of gliding on snow. The Wizard is used in conjunction with the school's award-winning on-slope instruction. The Beginner's Magic™ Wizard Session package includes a two-hour indoor coaching session on The Wizard, three hours of semi-private instruction on snow, equipment rental and lift ticket. Beginner's Magic includes a double guarantee: two levels of achievement in three- and six-day increments. Guests will be able to ski adequately on green circle trails within three days, and be able to make parallel turns on blue slopes in six days. If our guests don't achieve these milestones, we will teach them for free until they do or provide a refund. A 1999/2000 survey of Beginner's Magic™ participants shows that nearly 60 percent continued in the sport after their lessons, four times the industry average of 15 percent as reported by NSAA.
Looking to master the bumps, powder, steeps, crud, terrain parks and pipes? Adult Adrenaline Sessions fit the bill. These fast paced clinics will work on the skills needed to master each of these challenges. Stir the passion in your skiing, build confidence in your abilities, develop lasting relationships and simply have a blast with the Women's Edge program. The program includes video analysis, an on-mountain picnic, travel to other mountains and more. This unique four-day program is designed especially for women and taught by Level III PSIA-certified female pros.
