The Very First Step

We know all about the anxieties that arise during the first day on the slope. Getting on and off a chair lift. Attempting your first turns  and stops. Avoiding the unavoidable fall. We've been there ourselves.  We know what it takes to turn fear into a lifelong love of our sport  and we can't wait to help get you there.  If you still have concerns,  check out this video that shows a few tips to help you on your way.
