Lift tickets vs season pass for lessons: 

Please remember ALL Snow school participants require a lift ticket so be sure to purchase a season pass or a lesson ticket package. If you select the lift ticket package, the ticket is valid on the day of your lesson. If you are in a day program, your ticket is valid from 9 am to 4 pm and if you are in an evening program, your ticket is valid from 4 pm to 9 pm. A season pass is valid on the dates and times of the season pass selected. Make sure you select the option that is valid at the time of your lesson and at the times you want to come skiing or snowboarding outside of your lesson. For example, if you are taking lessons on a Saturday or Sunday, you would choose an unlimited season pass. If you are taking evening lessons, you could select a night season pass OR an unlimited season pass, other options are also available. 

Renting vs leasing equipment for lessons:

Rental skis or snowboards are available for lessons and you can select this option when you purchase your lessons.
Seasonal ski lease packages will be available early this winter. These cannot be reserved online, customers lease these packages directly at La Boutique. 

What’s the difference between rentals and seasonal leases?
When you rent skis or snowboards, you pick up your equipment before each lesson and drop it off after each lesson. We store it and tune it up as needed, all winter long. When you lease skis for the season you pick up the equipment at La Boutique and keep it with you for the season. This allows you to ski anywhere, anytime and return the equipment at the end of the season. You may choose to purchase the equipment at this time.

*Helmets are not included in either option, please purchase a helmet at La Boutique or the retailer of your choice.
