Morning Tours: 10:00AM Afternoon Tours: 1:15PM

Location: We begin our tours in front of the lower lodge deck, on the far left as you look up the ski hill. We are easy to spot in our bright yellow Ski Friend jackets.

Plan to be there ready to ski or ride 10 to 15 minutes before the tour time. We form each group according to your skiing/boarding level and assign a Ski Friend to lead your tour. Please note that persons under the age of 18 wanting to go on Ski Friend tours must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.

We then head to one of the lifts and up the mountain, to enjoy the best runs for your ability, given the conditions of the day.

We'll stop to explain the area layout, along with interesting mountain facts and history.
