Soldier Mountain Ladies Day 2021

Dates: Thursday, February 3rd, 10th, 17th, & 24th.

Soldier Mountain Ladies Day is a four-day workshop designed to help all the Lady skiers and boarders of all levels to gather on the slopes, have fun, and improve their skills. We will focus on improving everyone’s technique, love for sports, and excitement for outdoor adventures.

On the first day, everyone needs to be at the Snow Sports Lodge and ready to ski/board at 10 am. From there, we will assess abilities, break up into groups, and begin lessons. On subsequent days, meet at the Snow Sports Lodge for lessons; lessons will be from 12-1:30 pm. After lessons, we will eat lunch and then you can spend the rest of your day skiing and practicing your new skills. Before your lesson begins, settle into your gear, use the restrooms, and do a few warm-up runs. Space is limited, reserve your spot now!

Soldier Mountain Boot Camp

Contact Snow Sports Manager to schedule.

Soldier Mountain Boot Camp is a three-day course designed to help skiers and boarders of all levels have fun and be confident on the slopes. Our instructors focus on improving each student’s technique, awareness for others on the mountain, and love for their chosen sport. This camp is spread across three Fridays with a 1.5-hour group lesson each day. How students use their time outside of the lesson is up to them, but they are encouraged to practice their new skills and explore the mountain. For students to maximize their learning time, please be waiting in the lodge and ready to ski no later than 9:00 am. Soldier Mountain will not provide transportation to and from the resort. We highly encourage carpooling and ridesharing.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Weather can change quickly on the mountain, so layers are best. It is a good idea to have waterproof pants, a coat, gloves, along with sunglasses or goggles and non-cotton winter socks. Also, remember to apply sunscreen. A helmet is strongly recommended.
