Skiing Magazine called Belleayre "the best place to learn to ski in the East." Why? Great teaching terrain, excellent instructors, wide variety of beginner trails separate from the rest of the mountain and terrain mountain-wide that becomes more challenging in increments.

Belleayre offers the "Learn to Ski & Ride" program to first-time skiers and snowboarders. An all-inclusive package with 3 days of group lessons, rentals and lower mountain lift tickets, this program is great for anyone who wants to learn to ski or snowboard at the deeply discounted price of only $131!

On your first day, you’ll start in the Learning Circle to learn the basics – equipment, balance in motion, sliding, intro to turning. As you gain confidence and skill, you’ll venture to new terrain on your second and third visits, focusing on turns for control. Lift tickets for this program are valid on the Lower Mountain lifts and trails only. If your skills warrant advancement beyond the lower mountain by the end of your third lesson, you can purchase an all-area ticket separately. The package includes one lesson per day; additional lessons may be purchased separately.

Lessons are offered at 10 am and 1 pm every day. Weekends and Holidays, the Learning Area operates continuously from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Learn to Ski and Ride Program is for ages 8 to adult. The three days do not have to be consecutive. The program is not transferable or refundable and is available for first-time skiers and riders only. No refunds or credits will be given for any unused portion of the program. You must take your first lesson prior to March 1st to allow ample time for all three lessons. You must use all three days of the package in the same winter season and in the same discipline. This package is available as a one-time only purchase per person for either ski or snowboard.
You can purchase the LTS program at Belleayre either at the Ski School Desk in the Discovery Lodge or online on the Belleayre Store. Our Rental Shop in the Discovery Lodge opens at 7am, seven days a week. We cannot guarante the avalibility of rental equipment so please arrive early. Programs are subject to availability.
