How the Course Works

The course runs for six (6) consecutive weeks on Saturdays at Greek Peak starting 1/26/2019 and ending 3/2/2019. The course includes a 5 hour pass, 1 ¾ hour lesson, and rental equipment, if needed. It is important that your schedule permits attendance on this day throughout the season.

Bus transportation is provided by the college. The bus will leave promptly at 10:00am from Phillips Hall and arrive at Greek Peak at 10:45am. The bus will depart Greek Peak at 3:45pm and return to campus at approximately 4:30pm. Please be on time for bus departures.

When you arrive at Greek Peak, you will be greeted by a Greek Peak representative who will take attendance and make announcements.  All students will receive their College PE Photo ID card at their first class/session.  This card must be worn on your jacket for every class as this serves as your lift ticket/rental pass.  If you drive to Greek Peak, you will go to the College Program Ticket Window in the Katalima building (across from the Welcome Center), present your college ID card, and state that you are participating in the College Credit Ski/Snowboard Program to pick up your College PE Photo ID card and check in.  Each week thereafter, you will go to the same window to check in to verify your attendance.

The lesson meeting spot is located next to the Alpha Slope (Beginner’s Chair Lift). Please be there 10 minutes early.

The lesson times are as follows:
