Lesson and Rental Information for the 2020-21 Season

Equipment Rentals
All equipment rentals must be reserved and paid for online in advance so we may better accommodate and prepare for our guests. Guests should not expect to walk up for rentals. We have made it very easy to add a lift ticket to a rental reservation and to make a rental reservations as far in advance as possible.

Meadows Learning Center
Adult and children’s lessons at Meadows will need to be reserved and paid for in advance. This will allow us to match instructors to each day’s reservations. We will require a pre-arrival health screening for lesson participants. There will be other changes this season, including:
Youth Lessons
Parents will be responsible for escorting the child to the on-hill meeting place, and picking up the child after the lesson. Lesson participants require lift access (which can be added when making the online reservation). We will not be providing an indoor meeting space, or serving lunch for half-day lessons. Youth group lessons will start at age 7 to start the season. We may change this as the season progresses.
Adult Lessons
Lessons will need to be purchased in advance. Group lesson slots will be made available for online purchase and will require lift access (which can be added when making the online reservation). We will be limiting the size of our group lessons and will require a health screening.
Private Lessons
Some private lesson products may be purchased online, others will need to be requested online and confirmed over the phone. We will be offering a semi-private lesson for 2 to 5 people at a special rate to encourage those coming to the mountain together to maintain their bubble during lessons.
Other Lesson Options
Stay tuned as we plan to roll out other lesson options this season that make it easier for families or pre-arranged groups to take lessons together and stay socially distant from other groups taking lessons.
