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
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”.
The lesson times will remain the same- Friday PM 7-9pm, Saturday
11am-4pm (lunch from 1-2pm), Sunday 11am-4pm (lunch from1-2pm).
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.
If you have not yet responded to the confirmation email asking you to
confirm your teaching day(s) please do so immediately. Or email
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
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
