Rentals
Rentals are not included in the price of your lesson. Students can take advantage of discounted ski and rental packages when they add them on to their lesson. Rentals include your skis or board, boots, poles (skis only), and a helmet. Learn more about rental packages here.
We highly recommend students pick up rentals at West Portal Station the night before their lesson after 3pm. For day of pick up, please arrive an hour before your lesson.
Clothing
Weather can change quickly on the mountain. We strongly recommend students wear layers. These should include waterproof pants, coat and gloves, along with sunglasses or goggles and 1 pair of tall socks (ski or snowboard socks recommended). Children must wear a helmet & eye protection in order to participate in lessons. Many of these items are available for rental at West Portal Rentals, or purchase at West Portal Outfitters.

Every child in Ski + Ride School will be equipped with a GPS unit. At the end of the day instructors will hand out a Flaik code to parents and kids who can then go online to flaik.com to track vertical feet and map runs. Type in your child’s code, the date, and hit the “Relive your day” button.
Instructors can carry any medication/epi-pens in a specially marked pack with a form filled out by parents with specifics about the medication. Instructors cannot administer any medication but will call Ski Patrol if the Child cannot administer it.
