We try to put skiers and riders of similar ability together in the same groups. Please review our Skier and Rider Ability Chart to figure out which rating you are. Knowing your rating ahead of time will help us get you into the correct group and maximize your enjoyment of the lesson.
To ensure you have plenty of time to get ready for your lesson, please arrive at Bolton Valley at least 30 minutes prior to the start of your lesson. If you are going to be renting equipment, we recommend arriving an hour before your lesson starts. The posted start times are when your lesson will start so you need to have purchased your lesson, be dressed for skiing/riding, and have your equipment in hand by the posted start time. Being here early will ensure you have a better lesson experience.
