First Tracks

The Ski and Board School has taken one of its classics and turned it up to 11.

A First Tracks lesson still includes 1.5 hours of top-quality coaching from one of our internationally-renowned instructors like always. Instead, we've moved the start time to 8:00 AM to give you 30 minutes of EXCLUSIVE access to the Ridge Rocket Express Chair - which won't start spinning for the public until 8:30 AM - so you can experience true "First Tracks" in untouched powder or perfectly-groomed corduroy.

Plus, breakfast is now on us! You and your instructor will debrief over breakfast and coffee provided by Clocktower Coffee in the Village Centre Mall before continuing on your day while most skiers and riders are still getting out of bed.

Pre-booking is required at least 24 hours in advance. Call the Ski & Board School or visit us in the Village Centre Mall to book or for more information.
