First Timer FAQs

First-Timer FAQs

About the Learn-in-3 Guarantee

Q: What is the most affordable way to learn?
Answer: Group lessons. The Learn-in-3 Guarantee offers you unlimited group lesson packages including lesson, equipment rental and a lift ticket at a huge discount. Plus our exclusive ‘Guarantee’.

Q: What if I’m not ready to commit to 3-days?
Answer: You can purchase a single day package and upgrade to the Learn-in-3 Guarantee and pay the difference after your lesson.

Q: What does the ‘Guarantee’ mean?
Answer: We want you to feel confident and independent on the snow. This means obtaining the skills needed to tackle our easiest intermediate terrain. We guarantee to teach you those skills in 3 days, and if we can’t you can come back, on us, and receive additional lesson packages until you get there.

Q: So I can come back and take a free lesson if I’m not ready?
Answer: Yes. If you and your instructor feel you need more guided practice we will offer you another free package; lesson, access ticket for our learning area and equipment rental plus helmet. 

Q: What happens when I reach an intermediate level?
Answer: We consider you a graduate of the program and celebrate by giving you an awesome graduation packet complete with 2 complimentary lift tickets, a follow up clinic and exclusive retail and F+B discounts. We also offer graduates with no previous Season Pass history an incredible deal on a Season Pass for the 2017-18 season when they go on sale March 15th 2017!

Q: Who can sign up for this program?
Answer: This program is exclusively for ages 13 and over and those whose skills mean they are classified as a First Timer or Beginner. Those entering the program above that level will be transferred into other lesson programs.

Q: I'm a skier, can I sign up to learn snowboarding or vice-versa?
Answer: Yes! Although you cannot switch between the disciplines within the same program. If you wish to pursue both disciplines you will have to purchase two separate programs.

Q: Is this the only way to learn?
Answer: Not at all, if you don’t mind the cost Private Lessons offer the biggest learning opportunity in the shortest time frame because of the personalized aspect of the lesson and the ability to request the same instructor each time.

Q: What type of lift ticket does each day come with?
Answer: Each day you take as part of the Learn-in-3 Guarantee lesson program comes with a Learning Area lift ticket, which gives you access to the conveyor lifts in the learning area and Daisy, our beginner chairlift, only. Only upon graduating with an instructor will you be able to access any of the intermediate lifts on the mountain using one of the complimentary lift tickets that come with your graduation packet.

Q: If I don't use all my days, or don't finish the program this season, can I transfer unused days to someone else or keep going next winter?
Answer: The Learn-in-3 Gurantee is non-transferrable and non-refundable. Unused days and any discounts, tickets or vouchers associated with graduating expire at the end of the current winter season.

Q: What about the exclusive 2017-18 Season Pass discount?
Answer: This is the only graduation perk that does carry over. The discount voucher may be redeemed anytime from March 15th of the current season, through the 2017-18 winter season. It is not transferrable and is only valid for new passholders with no prior pass product history at Stevens Pass.

 

Reservations, check-in and cancellations

Q: What does a reservation mean?
Answer: Pre-paying or reserving ahead of time means we guarantee to have rental equipment for you and reserves your spot in a class at the start time chosen. By completing the process prior to arrival you will save time and avoid unnecessary lines. 

Q: Is a reservation necessary?
Answer: Reservations are highly recommended to expedite the check-in process and to guarantee a spot in a class. If you are planning a trip on a weekend or during a holiday we advise reserving as much as a week in advance as space in our programs fills up frequently, especially at the Morning start time. If you are walking-in, or if you have flexibility, we advise considering taking later afternoon lessons (4pm) or visiting on mid-week days to avoid the crowds.

Q: Sounds great! How can I sign up?
Answer: If you know the date you want to visit you can purchase online or by calling 206-812-7387, but must do so at least 48 hours prior to your first visit. If you want to purchase the package for someone else, or you do not know the date of your first visit, you can still purchase, but give us a call to do so.

Q: When do the lessons start?
Answer: We offer three lesson start times each day. 10am (Morning), 12pm (Midday), 2pm (Afternoon) and lessons are 90 minutes in length. On Peak Days we offer additional start times, with a morning lesson at 9am, and our last afternoon lesson at 4pm. Traffic, road conditions and parking can often unexpectedly extend your travel time. On Peak Days, we recommend arriving at least 90 minutes before your lesson, and for those with morning lessons, we strongly advise aiming for the 9am start time for the best overall experience.

Q: How do I reserve days after my initial purchase?
Answer: To reserve any day after purchasing the package submit an online reservation inquiry or call us at 206-812-7387. Remember that on weekends and holidays space fills up fast so book with plenty of time to spare.

Q: Do my days have to be used consecutively?
Answer: No. But they must be used before the end of the current winter season and you cannot switch from skiing to snowboarding within the program.

Q: What if I need to cancel my reservation?

Answer: To cancel/reschedule a reservation, call 206-812-7387 and choose the option for cancellations/rescheduling.
