Classes for our Powderpig parents and friends are available on the weekends and are coordinated with the children’s lesson times. These classes have an instructor with a small group of students who work in a format of small group instruction and individual directed practice. This provides the flexibility necessary to allow students to work on particular skills and move between groups when skills and experience dictate. This assures adult students the opportunity to learn at their own pace.
The Adult Lessons begin 15 minutes after the children’s classes start and end 15 minutes before the children get out. This allows you a 15 minute buffer before and after both morning and afternoon “sessions” so you will have time to get your Powderpigs into classes and then get ready for your own lesson without having to rush.
The cost for the “Adults Unlimited” classes will be $275 for the Friday evening session (1½ hours for nine weeks), and $345 for the Saturday or Sunday session (3 hours for nine weeks). Parkas are not included in the adult program.
Good equipment is just as important for our adult Powderpigs as it is for our younger Powderpigs. A visit to your favorite snow sport store is a good first step. If you are skiing on skis you have used before, taking your skis in to get them checked out, tuned up and the bindings checked is also a very good idea. Both the Alpine Hut and Gerk’s Ski and Spoke as well as Edge and Spoke provide these services and do a fine job! As with the kid’s equipment, the earlier you visit these stores, the less congested they will be and the more individual attention you will receive.
