A two-hour ski lesson, part of a series of four Saturday lessons.

A ski lesson at Meany is typically 2 hours long delivered in two 1-hour sessions.  The sessions meet at 10 am and 2 pm at the tow hut. At the beginning of the lesson on the first Saturday, we will watch you ski to assign you to the appropriate class and instructor.

This lesson is an add-on that requires you to also register for day-use or an overnight at Meany Lodge for the same days as your lessons.  Please see the Meany Lodge Calendar to register for day-use or an overnight.

Roster
Required Equipment

Required Equipment

Downhill skis, ski boots, poles.   Please bring your own or rent equipment in town - the Snow Sports Director (daniel-del-norte@outlook.com) can help answer your questions.  The Mountaineers does not provide you with equipment, and we do not have equipment to rent at the Lodge.  

Helmets are strongly recommended.

Clothing and Gloves:  Be prepared to spend the day outside.  The rope tow can be hard on clothing, so leave the good ski coat at home and wear an old jacket.  It also wears out gloves and mitts quickly, so we recommend wearing leather work gloves over glove liners.  Welding gloves also work well.  Meany also has several styles of leather over-mitt protectors available for sale.   Most people stay plenty warm while skiing.  We recommend bringing a separate pair of warm mitts to wear while you are not skiing.
