Keystone Adult Group Lessons

 

Adult Group Lessons

Thank you for booking your Keystone Ski & Ride School Lesson! 

Adult Lessons are available at both the River Run and Mountain House base areas. Please be sure to double check your lesson confirmation to assure you arrive at the appropriate location. Both base areas are accessible via Keystone’s in-resort transportation system, as well as free and paid public parking lots.

 

What to Bring:

  • Appropriate warm, waterproof outer layers (coat and pants)
  • We suggest dressing in layers, with a moisture wicking, non-cotton base layer
  • Smart Wool socks are our preferred footwear, but always wear only one pair of non-cotton socks
  • Waterproof gloves/mittens
  • A helmet (optional for adult lesson participants, but strongly suggested)
  • Sunglasses/goggles; the sun is stronger at 10,000’ and reflects off snow much like off of water
  • Supergoop! Sunscreen
  • Hand and/or foot warmers can be helpful on the coldest of days!
  • All equipment: Skis/snowboard, boots and poles (optional, for skiers only)

*Lockers are available nearby both Adult Ski & Ride School locations. We suggest participants do not carry a backpack on the mountain. Classes will stop for water breaks as often as necessary. Please do ensure you carry your Lift Ticket, ID and cash/credit card if you’ll be purchasing lunch on the mountain
