An oportunity to learn how to downhill ski or improve your skills as well as the oportunity to learn to classic cross-country ski. I will hold beginner lessons, intermediate lessons and adances lessons for downhill skiing as for cross-country skiing I will offer an introductory course. A description of the lessons and when they will be is below.
Due to Cypress not opening until December there is a change in plans I will only be able to teach downhill and this will occur at Whistler where the price of tickets is about double. It looks like they have an early season price of $66.00 though. The other bonus is that it looks like it is going to snow all week long! Yay powder!


November 29


Cypress, this is dependent on Cypress being open on the date, also the schedule here is tentative and dependent on Cypress having all facilities open with night skiing by November 29.

Note: Cypress is closed for night skiing until December 15th. See Talk:Mini Ski School Cypress won't open untill December
