Ski Or Ride In 5

SKI OR RIDE IN 5℠ is an award-winning lesson program designed for those "never-evers" who have not had previous experiences trying to learn to ski or snowboard. The SKI OR RIDE IN 5℠ program offers candidates who are committed to becoming a skier or snowboarder this year by committing to a 5 lesson program with instruction by one of Mt. Bachelor's hand-picked instructors based on their communication skills and overall success rate of coaching beginners. Included in lessons is a ski or snowboard rental and daily lift ticket.

Mt. Bachelor's SKI OR RIDE IN 5℠ learn-to-ski or snowboard program has received the coveted "Conversion Cup" award by the National Ski Areas Association, recognizing Mt. Bachelor as having the best beginner program that "converts" first-timers into life-long snow sports enthusiasts.

NOTE: This program is designed exclusively for those new to snowsports.  It is not meant for someone who already knows one discipline and wants to crossover to another. If you are familiar with skiing or riding and can get on chairlifts, know about the mountain, or have done it before, this program is not for you. We will be assessing this at the outset of the program.  If you are deemed to be already a snowsports participant by your instructor, we will excuse you from the program.

HOW TO REGISTER

We will begin registering participants in late November or early December!

Give us a call at 541-382-1709 to register. To ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria for SKI OR RIDE IN 5℠ , we only process registrations over the phone. Participants must pre-register 4 days in advance of your first lesson. The deadline to enroll in the program is January 31, 2018. Once you are registered you will be issued a  SKI OR RIDE IN 5℠ photo pass that you will use to check-in for your lesson, get your equipment rentals and access the chairlifts. 

After you pre-register, you don't need to reserve a lesson on a specific day or time; simply show up any five days between early January and late March. Two-hour lessons are offered daily at 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. We recommend arriving at Sunrise Lodge at least one hour prior to the lesson start time during midweek lessons, and 1.5 hours prior to lesson time for weekends & holidays, in order to get set-up with comfortable rental equipment. Weekends and holidays can be busy with larger lesson group sizes and longer wait times to rent equipment, so we recommend midweek days for the best SKI OR RIDE IN 5℠ experience. Please note that only one lesson is permitted per day.
