Mount Peter loves beginners!

Generations of first-time skiers and snowboarders have gotten hooked on their life-long hobby on the mountain. Our laid back slopes are the perfect place to learn, with one of our certified Mountain School instructors!

We’re famous for our Free Beginner Lessons on holidays and weekends, but we have introductory level lessons and packages of all kinds and at all times. Join us soon to discover the joy of skiing and snowboarding! We know that once you get the feel for sliding on snow, you'll be hooked too.


FREE Beginner Ski & Snowboard Lessons

Our Free Beginner Ski & Snowboard Lessons are available to skiers ages 5 and up with the purchase of a Lift Ticket. Lessons are available between the hours of 10 am and 2:30 pm, starting every half hour. Each 1-hour lesson is conducted in a group format at the base of the mountain.

Emphasis is placed on introduction to equipment, sliding movements, basic balance and stance, stopping and direction changes. For your littlest skiers, check out our Pete's Pals package, which caters to Tiny Tots, ages 4 and under.
