FAQs

Arrive early enough so you wont be rushed. On weekends and during prime (holiday) periods, plan to arrive at Camelback’s main ticket plaza at least 90 minutes prior to your lesson start time. On (non-holiday) midweek days, we plan to arrive at the ticket plaza 60 minutes prior to your lesson start time. Remember… earlier is always better!

When purchasing a beginner package, yes rentals are included along with a beginner lift ticket.

As a beginner, you should have reasonable expectations about your first day out at the ski resort. Hopefully, many of the things below will give you a better idea of what to expect. But there are some important basics to be prepared for:

  • Pace yourself and set reasonable expectations, focus on fun.
  • Learning something new is not always easy, but it will be rewarding and exciting when you succeed.
  • Everyone learns at a different pace.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask your instructor questions, they are there to help you learn.

The good news is that, after the first day or two, most of these problems go away. Even on the first couple of days, you can still find a lot of space for enjoyment at the ski resort, but that depends on a host of other important details. How good or bad your first day is depends on attitude going into your lesson. If you think it’s fun, it will be. So, HAVE FUN!

Moderate sized Group Lessons offered at the ski resort are appropriate for all ability levels and focus to hone and polish your skills (every lesson grouped by age and skill set.)
Private Lessons offer one-on-one attention that produces fast, fun results and focuses on what you want to learn. For more information on getting your kids into a lesson check out our Kids Lesson Options.

It’s tempting to borrow equipment from friends or family, especially when the boots actually seem to fit your feet. But you’re better off renting. Here’s why: all of our beginner equipment is designed for beginners specifically. They’re specifically engineered to turn more easily and are more forgiving than either upper level or budget equipment. Our rental staff will make sure that your boots will properly match your feet; if you need a half size up or down, we can accommodate you. Your first time out should be enjoyable and productive. The beginner packages we offer at our ski resort include ski or snowboard rental equipment specifically matched to your size and stature. If any of the Camelback rental equipment doesn’t fit or feel right, come back to the rental shops to exchange for equipment that fits and feels correct.
