Multi-Week Programs: Weekdays
Mount Peter’s Multi-Week Ski and Snowboard Program, for both beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders, is a fun way to either learn the sports of skiing and snowboarding, or to improve your skills. For kids (as of 12/1/19 - ages 5 and up for skiing and 6 and up for snowboarding; and in kindergarten), the program is offered Tuesday through Friday nights. You choose one night and time that is best for your child and come for the duration of the program on that same night. The adult program is offered Thursday morning and evening. The program begins the week of Tuesday, January 7th, 2020.
This is a six-week program with a make-up week on the seventh week that can be attended if a week is missed, or you can use it as a bonus week! The program is ala carte, meaning that you only have to sign-up for what you need. We offer lift tickets (which are good from 3 p.m.-closing for the evening program, and 10 a.m.-close for the adult daytime program), lessons (which are one hour per session), and rentals. Remember, if you do not have a season pass, you will need to purchase the lift ticket portion of the program. A season pass/lift ticket is considered an “area ticket,” which you must have in order to be on the snow. Please also remember that late arrivals will not be given extended lesson time.
The deadline to sign up for the early rate is December 8th, 2019. Please note that there will be a parent meeting the first day your child starts the program in the Bear’s Den at 15 minutes past your child’s start time; example: if class starts at 5 p.m., the meeting is at 5:15 p.m. We strongly encourage all parents to attend the meeting! For the adult program, there will be a meeting at the start of the program, on the mountain when you meet your instructor.
These programs fill up very fast, so sign-up soon! If you have any questions, please give the mountain a call at 845-986-4940, or stop by customer service during office hours. All the forms can be found on our website. Fill them out and send in you or your child’s form to guarantee your preferred day and time.
