When your kids start telling you to 'hurry up', it's time to take a lesson! Prime Time is ideal for parents with children in lessons at Alpental. Your coach will help customize your experience to build your confidence and improve your skills. This program ends before the youth programs, so you'll have time to ride more and still meet your kids for pickup on schedule.

  • Each session includes 5 lessons
  • Choose Saturdays, Sundays, or both
  • Open to ability levels 1-5 only

What's included

This program includes coaching sessions for the time shown above on the day(s) chosen. Mountain access in the form of a lift ticket or season pass is required, but not included. Ski equipment (skis, boots, poles, etc) is required, but not included.

Please Note: We recommend purchasing a Summit Unlimited season pass with your lesson as season pass inventory is limited and the earlier you buy, the lower the price. You may choose a pass to add to your cart after selecting a multi-week lesson program in our online store.

  • Our goal is to maximize the student's time while focusing on safety, fun, and learning. A typical lesson will follow the outline below:

    • The first 15 minutes of the lessons is used for welcoming students, discussing goals, checking equipment, and warmup activities.
      • Lessons will depart the meeting area approximately 15 minutes after the scheduled start time. If a student is late, we will make a reasonable effort to connect them with their group, but this is not always possible.
    • For the majority of the lesson time, students will be actively engaged in skiing or snowboarding - building the skills to slide on snow. However, instructors may incorporate breaks as needed based on age, ability, weather, and other factors.
      • Breaks may be indoors or outdoors depending on the circumstance.
    • Instructors aim to return to the meeting area 10 minutes before the lesson's scheduled end time. This allows instructors to recap the day’s activities, answer questions, and transition the students back to parents or guardians.
      • We encourage you to be present during this time.
    • To ensure a smooth pickup, parents or guardians should plan to arrive at the meeting area before the scheduled lesson end time.
