We ask our allies to allow BIPoC members to register for this event. Thank you!
If you’ve already attended a Whistler event (not including steep skiing or snowboarding clinics) in February, please give others the opportunity to sign up.
This intro to downhill skiing lesson in Whistler will help you learn the basics from how to put on your boots and skis to learning to stop and more. This lesson will be taught on the bunny hill.
Suitable for beginners who have no experience to those still working on the very basics of skiing/getting comfortable on the slopes, beginner-friendly. Ages 18+
Please note: each participant will be responsible for getting to Whistler. You can organize carpooling through our Private Facebook Group. There are also shuttles/buses that you can take from Vancouver to Whistler. We’ve reduced the cost of this event to account for additional transportation costs. If you are carpooling with someone, please make sure to chip in for gas/parking.
