Learn To Ski or Ride Packages
Learn-To Packages (Ages 6 & Older)
Catamount offers wonderful Learn to Ski or Ride programs for people that have never been on skis or a snowboard before which guarantee new participants ages 6 and older will learn or the next lesson is free. The beginner area for first-timers is the Snowsports Learning Area. This is a wide, gentle slope served by a 300’ Wonder Carpet surface lift that’s as easy to ride as the moving sidewalks at the airport. The program cost is only $85 on weekends & holidays or $65 on non-holiday week days and includes your 1 ½ hour class lesson, rental equipment and your lift ticket for the Wonder Carpet. With an appropriate level of progress, the instructor may recommend advancing to the Meadows beginner area. This area, served by the Meadows Triple Chairlift, offers the most green circle “easier” terrain in the Berkshires – making it a superb place to learn to ski or snowboard. Again this program is for people that have never been skiing or riding before.
Learn to Ski or Ride class lessons are offered at 9am, 9:30am, 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm and 6pm when we are open for night skiing (subject to availability).
On days when the program is exceptionally busy, lesson times may be limited to group lesson times- 9:30am, 11am and 2pm. Please be sure to arrive at least an hour prior to your desired lesson time. Reservations are not required or accepted. If you take your Learn to Ski or Ride lesson before 12pm, you are entitled to return for another lesson (free of charge) at 2pm the same day.
Our “Return to Learn” program offers you the ability to join us 2 more times to continue the enjoyment of learning to ski or snowboard for just $95.
These visits will include a lift ticket for our beginner terrain, a group lesson (at regular lesson times; 9:30, 11 or 2) and rental equipment. While we feel the learning process never ends and that lessons should be continued, three days spent with our professional and caring staff should prepare you to explore most of the green terrain accessed from our Meadows Triple Chairlift.
The “Return to Learn” can only be purchased on the date of your first visit at the Snowsports desk before the end of the day.
Your subsequent visits can be made on any day during the course of the current season and need not be on consecutive days. The top portion of this card must be completed by your instructor and redeemed with your initial “Learn To” ticket, as it is non-transferable. You MUST attend a lesson to qualify for this offer. As an added bonus, Catamount will allow you to apply the cost of your three visits with us towards a season pass for the remainder of the season. A season pass gives you the ability to come out and ski or snowboard whenever the mountain is open, giving you many opportunities to improve your skills.
