Alyeska Resort’s Discover Ski and Snowboard Program Offers an Affordable Introduction to Snow Sports for Children
December 4, 2012 (Girdwood, Alaska) – The Discover Ski and Snowboard Program is a collaborative effort between Alyeska Resort and the Four Valleys Community School. Designed for children ages eight years and through high school, the Discover Program introduces the sport of skiing or snowboarding.
The program consists of three group lessons held on three consecutive Saturdays or Sundays. The lessons are two hours in length and include a lunch break (lunch not included) and a free period in the afternoon for free skiing or riding (no chaperones will be provided). Optional afternoon lessons are available for an additional fee on a week by week basis.
The program costs $160 per student and includes beginner’s lift ticket, two hour lesson and transportation from Anchorage and Eagle River. Rental gear is available for an additional $30. For students with intermediate abilities, the Discover Upper Mountain Program provides a similar offering for $205 including equipment rental or $175 without rentals. The Discover Upper Mountain without Lesson Program is designed for all-mountain ski or snowboard kids seeking a packaged lift ticket and transportation savings without a lesson. The program costs $185 with rental equipment or $155 without rentals.
