Each day is half-free ski drills and half gates and during early season there is all-free ski sessions, which allows entry level and good skiers who just want to improve their technique to take part. The program was started in 1990 with seven participants; last year the program had over 100. It gives locals a chance to catch part or a full day of ski instruction. It is not all hard core, on powder days we ski powder as a group and work on those skills. Season prices increase Nov. 1. For more info, contact Bill Skinner at (435) 647.2633 or
