Phoenix Mountain Racers

This is not a learn to ski program, but rather, a learn to "ski better in all terrain and conditions" program.  Lessons are taught by certified instructors and follow the seven-step Snow Star program. This year the program will include an "All-Mountain" component.

Note: All participants must wear a hard-sided helmet (shell must cover ears and temples).

Although ski races are set with different clubs at other hills during the season, race participation is not a requirement of Phoenix Mountain Racers membership.

Note: Registration fee does not cover lift tickets or any ski equipment needed.
