If you need lessons or equipment, let the Cresthaven club trip leader know at the time you sign up for the trip. The club trip leader can help make arrangements with the mountain. If you need to rent equipment, you may want to rent from a local ski shop and bring them with you - it will save valuable ski time rather than waiting on line at the mountain!
Ski and snowboard lesson are available from the ski mountain! The club trip leader can help arrange a beginner, advanced or personal, lifts/lesson/equipment package for you. The price of the club trip will be adjusted so you will not pay twice for ski lift tickets. Many ski areas offer these packages at extremely low prices to get you started. After you have taken your beginner lessons, we will arrange for you to have a "Ski Buddy". Be sure to let the Cresthaven ski club trip leader know if you want lessons at the time you sign up for the club trip.
