First Turn Program

Tuesday Nights in January & February

Our First Turns students will be introduced to the joys of skiing and snowboarding by participating in a fun group atmosphere.  This is designed for first-time skiers or snowboarders and is a three-week designed course with an additional week scheduled in case you miss one.  

This class will include on and off-slope key fundamentals involved in downhill skiing or snowboarding.  Each lesson will start at the Snow School Yurt (located directly below Blitzen Lift).  Plan other fun activities followed by a small snack – then out onto the snow we go! 

All students will stay on the Magic Carpet ski areas. 

The program includes 3 weekly classes, rental equipment and helmet (if needed) and a complimentary season pass for 3-5 year olds only.
