LEARN TO SKI OR RIDE PACKAGE - Ages 4 and up - $149 

The best and most economical way to get started skiing or snowboarding is our popular Learn to Ski or Ride Package designed for first timers!  This program includes 3 days of rentals, group lessons and a restricted lift ticket (valid for the moving carpets) for each day.  All 3 days do not need to be consecutive. Special Note: China Peak's Learn to Ski or Snowboard Program is specific to learning to ski or snowboard. Once you select either skiing or snowboarding, if at any time prior to completing all 3 days you desire to switch from skiing to snowboarding or vice versa, you are required to purchase a new Learn to Ski or Snowboard package.

  • Valid for beginners ages 4+.
  • Includes rentals and a group lesson each of 3 days.
  • Includes a beginner ticket valid for the moving carpet on all 3 days.  If appropriate, access to chairlifts is allowed during a lesson with an instructor.
  • Purchasers may upgrade at an additional fee to a chairlift ticket after 12PM on any of the 3 days of the program after completing the lesson.
  • When purchasing the 3 day program, purchaser is committing to learn to either ski or snowboard, not both. If at any time during the 3 day program purchaser decides to switch to skiing or snowboarding, the program starts over and purchaser is required to purchase a new three day package, no exceptions.

Please note that this program is for first time skiers and riders only and is not valid for purchase with Costco Cash Cards.
