TIPS FOR YOUR FIRST LESSON

SPORTS SCHOOL LOCATION

The Sports School sales desk and Guest Service are located in the Village Day Lodge at the base of the Sunburst and Sundance chairlifts. This is where you check-in for lessons and can pick-up your rental equipment and lift tickets (the rental shop is next to the Sports School for a one stop shop).

WHERE DO LESSONS START?

The meeting area for all lessons is just around the corner from the Sports School office and right at the base of our beginner area.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Due to ever-changing conditions, we recommend dressing in layers;

  • Thermal long underwear or tights as a base layer is recommended.

  • Socks should be a wool/polyester blend and not too bulky, one pair of socks is sufficient.

  • Outer layer should be water and wind resistant. If your outer layer is not insulated, add extra layers underneath for warmth.

  • Wool and polyester/fleece blends are warmer and drier than cotton.

  • A warm hat is necessary on cold days; on warmer days (above 0°C) a headband or cap are sufficient. We recommend the use of helmets but it is not mandatory.

  • Gloves or mittens are essential.

  • Wear goggles to protect your eyes on snowy and/or windy days.

  • Sunscreen is strongly recommended for sunny days.

BEGINNER TERRAIN

Sun Peaks has some of the best beginner terrain anywhere; from our beginner-only area to Gentle Giant, followed by Homesteader, we offer a fantastic progression that allows beginners to progress easily and quickly. Our various carpets and surface lifts are well adapted and easy to use.

EQUIPMENT

Our 'Learn to Ski/Snowboard" packages include skis and snowboards specially designed for beginners, which tend to be shorter and more flexible, putting the emphasis on ease rather than performance.

  • Ski and snowboard boots should provide a relaxed and comfortable fit, designed to feel snug when done up providing foot stability. Remember, ski socks are preferable and one pair is sufficient.

  • Ski poles are useful for balance and rhythm while skiing, learning with poles is a good idea.

SAFETY TIPS

  • Always wear a helmet and other protective gear.

  • Remember to take it easy, and stop for the occasional rest.

  • Stay hydrated throughout the day.

  • Follow the Alpine Responsibility Code.

  • Take a lesson to ensure a safe and fun learning environment.
