FRISCO —The Frisco Adventure Park will soon be humming with the vibe of an old-time neighborhood ski hill, as the town teams up with the Copper Mountain Ski & Ride School to offer two-hour beginner ski lessons.
“Copper has always been Frisco’s mountain and Frisco continues to be our town,” said JP Chevalier, director of ski and golf services at Copper. “This relationship naturally led us to forming a service partnership, at the Frisco Adventure Park. The Copper Ski & Ride School is thrilled to be launching a first time family and friend introduction to snowsports in the heart of Summit County.”
The two hour sessions, starting Feb. 6, will help first-timers learn basic skills on the gentle slope of the Frisco Adventure Park. The lessons will be available starting Monday, Feb. 6 and will continue through March. Ski and ride lessons are $79 and include an all-day lift pass.
Advance reservations are required: Call the Frisco Adventure Park at (970) 668-2558. Skiers and riders must bring their own gear as rentals are not available at the Adventure Park.
The lessons will initially be offered Mondays and Fridays and may be offered more frequently through February and March as demand warrants. The lessons provide visitors to the area close-in parking, an affordable trial alternative in an intimate class setting.
The two-hour classes will start at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. subject to weather and instructor availability. Check with the Frisco Adventure Park for more details.
“Families will now be able to enjoy tubing, nordic skiing, horse drawn sleigh rides and a learn to ski or ride program in one place, on the same day. Our aim will be to provide exceptional entertainment value and ultimately develop a passion for Snowsports that will last a life time,” Chevalier said.
