Where To Go

When booking or checking in for lessons, your first stop on the mountain is the Ski and Ride desk, located in the Base Lodge. From the main front entrance, go up the first flight of blue stairs and look left.

The Children's Learning Center is located on the ground floor at the west end of the lodge. From outside, while facing the front doors of the lodge, you will see the Children's Learning Center sign below the Bob Beverly Check-In to your right, and the door is to the right of the employee entrance. The CLC is open daily from 8:30-3:30. Come say hi!

Proper Clothing

We’re in Colorado, expect every kind of weather. All guests should wear winter and snow appropriate coats, snow pants, hats or helmets, mittens or gloves, and googles or sunglasses. Wear only one pair of socks to avoid slipping and bunching inside your ski boots. Sun intensity increases with altitude – we recommend sunscreen and lip protection.
