LEARN TO SKI OR RIDE PROGRAM – A SKI OR SNOWBOARD 3-VISIT PACKAGE
Skiing Magazine called Belleayre “the best place to learn to ski in the East.” Why? Great teaching terrain, excellent instructors, a wide variety of beginner trails separate from the rest of the mountain and terrain mountain-wide that becomes more challenging in increments. Belleayre offers the “Learn to Ski & Ride” program to first-time skiers and snowboarders. The package includes 3 days of group lessons, rentals and lower mountain lift tickets for only $131!
On your first day, you’ll start in the Learning Circle to learn the basics – equipment, balance in motion, sliding, intro to turning. As you gain confidence and skill, you’ll venture to new terrain on your second and third visits, focusing on turns for control.
Lift tickets for this program are valid on the Lower Mountain lifts and trails only. If your skills warrant advancement beyond the lower mountain by the end of your third lesson, you can purchase an all-area ticket separately. Lessons are offered at 10 am and 1 pm every day. Weekends and Holidays, the Learning Circle operates continuously from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Learn to Ski and Ride Program is for ages 8 to adult. You can purchase the LTS program online on the Belleayre Store, at the mountain or by calling 845-254-6116. The Rental Shop in the Discovery Lodge opens at 7am, seven days a week. Programs are subject to availability. There are no blackout periods for this program.
Lift, lesson & rental packages are also available daily for purchase in the rental shop.
