First Tracks

Our "First Tracks" lesson gets you ahead of the crowd, up the chairlift before it opens to the public, allowing you time to enjoy the sunrise. Meet your instructor at 7:50 am; everyone then heads over to Ridge Rocket chairlift for an 8:00 am load. As the name describes, you will have "First Tracks" down a selected run; remember the mountain isn't open to everyone yet. We have organized for Ski Patrol to join us as a tail gunner, so safety is looked after.

The lesson provides 45 minutes of EXCLUSIVE access to the Ridge Rocket Express Chair and spans 1.5 hours of top-quality coaching from one of our experienced instructors. The First Tracks lesson should enable you to get two runs before it opens to the public. All this means there is potential for you to experience real "First Tracks" in untouched powder or perfectly-groomed corduroy. It's between you and your instructor what you want to work on, guided mileage, or learn how to ski powder on untracked slopes. It's your time on the mountain to enjoy what the morning has to offer and treat yourself to a memorable experience.

This program requires you to be a confident skier or boarder on blue runs. All participants must be comfortable riding the chairlift. 24-hour advanced booking required, no drop-ins.

Includes:

  • Exclusive early opening of Ridge Rocket Express Chair
  • 1.5 hours of top-quality coaching from one of our internationally-renowned instructors
