Designed for those who've never been skiing or snowboarding before, Learn to ski/ride packages include lesson, all-day equipment rental and all-day beginner lift ticket. Guests wishing to upgrade to a full Homewood lift ticket (allowing access to all chairlifts) in the afternoon after their lesson package can do so for an additional cost. 3-Packs include an all-mountain lift ticket on the third day.
Arriving for your lesson: All adult group lesson participants should check in at the Ski & Snowboard School building (Little Red School House) behind the North Lodge at least 30 minutes prior to the lesson start time (we recommend 1 hour prior on weekends/holidays). Lesson times are 10:00 am - 12:30 pm OR 1:00 - 3:30 pm.
We strongly recommend advanced online registration to expedite the check-in process. Same-day on-site registration cannot be guaranteed.
