The lifts are open 8:00-4:30 (Bear/Summit). We will leave before dawn for the drive to catch early lifts before the mountain gets busy and sun warms it up. It is early, but you can sleep in the van. Each trip includes a lift ticket to the mountain. Each trip has an option to add an optional Ski or Snowboard lesson package. The lesson package includes an approximately 2 hour lesson and ski/snowboard rentals from the resort rental shop. If doing the lesson package, you will get your rentals once you arrive at the resort. If you want ski/snowboard rentals, but don’t need the lesson package, the Outback Rental Shop has an excellent selection of skis and snowboards.
