Lessons for your very first time skiing or snowboarding

So you have never skied or snowboarded before?

Our first-time lessons offer a great experience for new skiers and snowboarders. The very first lesson covers getting familiar with the equipment and learning how to stop. We also offer a Never Ever Day once a month where lift, rentals and lesson are included for only $35.

NEVER EVER DAY

Learn to Ski or Snowboard for the very first time with Never Ever Days!

Never Ever Days are the perfect way for anyone to learn the basics of Skiing or Snowboarding affordably. Lesson, rentals, and a snoopy lift pass are included for only $35 + HST

Never ever days are run with association from the Canadian Ski Association, we aim to have one a month to help adults or children experience the sport of skiing or snowboarding for the very first time.

Please arrive 1 hour before the lesson start time to organise rentals and be ready for your lesson to start in our beginner area promptly. This is a group lesson of up to 15 participants, but the average number per instructor is generally at a ratio of 1:8. Students are grouped by age (for example, adults will be in one class, children in another), ski and snowboard never ever days operate at different times. If you prefer one-on-one instruction, or to learn with your child, please consider a Private lesson.

The lesson is spent with 2 hours on snow. At the end of the 2 hours, students should expect a basic understanding of stopping and turning on a beginner slope. Depending on the ability of the group, you may get a chance to ride the chairlift and come down the snoopy run, our easiest chairlift terrain.

Once you are comfortable with stopping and turning, the next lesson will focus on getting proficient at turning in a snowplow and starting to ski more parallel. Students will start to explore other runs on the hill.
