Tips for being a Mountain Ranger on your first Day:

  • Get a good night’s sleep, come rested and eat a healthy breakfast.
  • Put your boots on and walk around.  If you can, put on your skis and play around, take skis on and off, sit down and stand up, glide and stop.  If you can, SKI, SKI, SKI!
  • Please practice chairlift safety with your parents.  "Sit Back, Hold On, Look Forward, and Don't Fool Around."
  • Dress warmly, waterproof jacket and pants, ski socks, gloves or mittens that are waterproof and EASY to take on and off, helmet and goggles.  Be sure to LABEL everything with your name.
  • Be sure your equipment is ready, boots fit, and skis the right height, (right at your chin!) 
    • Please call office or email me with any equipment questions
  • Bring a healthy snack in your pocket, as well as a couple of dollars (in case we need hot chocolate!)
  • Be sure to have your Season Pass.
  • Be on time, and wear your smile for a GREAT day.
