Hi Powderpigs Instructors, one and all!

Good Evening Powderpig Instructors!

The time has come!  Our weekend program is a GO.  We have some big changes, including the location of lessons, so please read this carefully!

FRIDAY PM, SATURDAY & SUNDAY LESSONS ARE ON!!
This weekend lessons will be held at Summit West.  We will have a fenced off area in front of Rosita’s (restaurant), just west of the Pacific Crest Quad (if you are facing to look up the hill, we will be to the right of the Pacific Crest chair).  We will also have a pop-up tent set up to act as our “base camp”. 

LESSON TIMES
The lesson times will remain the same- Friday PM 7-9pm, Saturday 11am-4pm (lunch from 1-2pm), Sunday 11am-4pm (lunch from1-2pm).

INSTRUCTOR MEETINGS
Friday PM we will hold a 6pm instructor meeting inside of Rositas.  Class assignments will be given out and you can create your student cards.  Saturday and Sunday we will have a 10am instructor meeting inside of Rositas.  If you have not received your class assingment yet, this is when you will get it and do the papers. 

CONFIRMATION EMAIL
If you have not yet responded to the confirmation email asking you to confirm your teaching day(s) please do so immediately.  Or email Jennifer (
jennifer@powderpigs.com) if you did not receive it.

PLEASE COME PREPARED
Because we won’t have our lodge as base camp, please plan on arriving early.  Most of the Summit Central private ski schools are also operating from Summit West this weekend.  That means parking and seating will likely be very tight.  Come early to find parking, find us, and get settled.  

LUNCH
For our Saturday & Sunday classes lunch is from 1pm-2pm.  Plan on sack-style lunches, or buying lunch from the Area’s cafeteria.  There are not means for reheating food, or getting hot water for instant meals.  Friday PM lessons do not take a "lunch" break, so please leave time to eat beforehand.

DRESS FOR THE WEATHER
As always, please keep an eye on the weather forecast and help your students enjoy their lessons by dressing them appropriately.

SUPER BOWL WEEKEND - AS IN DON'T EVEN THINK OF CALLING IN SICK
SEA!!  HAWKS!!!!  In order to accommodate Super Bowl parties we will shift our program on Sunday, February 1st to run one hour earlier.  Therefore, lessons will start at 10am.  Lunch will go from 12-1pm.  Lessons will conclude at 3pm.  We will have an instructor (and their families) post lessons super bowl party at the Pigpen-- bring your tailgating snacks, and settle in on the main floor to watch the game!

We have used Summit West for temporary operations before and had a ball.  We are so excited to meet all of our students and see returning faces this weekend!

Think Snow!
