TAKING A HOLIDAY WEEK OR 6 WEEK PROGRAM LESSON?

Willard's Top 10 Ways to Have the BEST Experience Possible!

1. Meet your coordinator (if you have one) to obtain your pass and any information that you may need to have a successful program.

2. Put your program pass on a location that is VISIBLE and permanent. (We recommend your helmet). That way when you shed layers or switch jackets you will still have your pass. This will save you the inconvenience and fee of having to obtain another pass.

3. If you are renting equipment come up to the mountain well before your lessons start to be fitted. The rental shop is open for fittings anytime the mountain is open. If you have your own equipment, be sure to have your ski or snowboard bindings adjusted correctly at a local ski shop.

4. Drink plenty of water. Be careful not to become dehydrated.

5. Bring healthy, filling food or money for the cafeteria. Skiing is exercise and you will get hungry.

6. Dress in layers. Layering allows you to accommodate your body's constantly changing temperature. For example, dress in polypropylene underware (top and bottoms) which feels good next to the skin, dries quickly, absorbs sweat and keeps you warm. Wear a turtleneck, sweater and jacket.

7. Be prepared. Mother Nature has a mind of her own. Bring a headband or hat with you to the slopes, 60 percent of heat-loss is through the head. Wear gloves or mittens (mittens are usually better for those susceptible to cold hands).

8. Wear sunscreen and goggles. The glare from the reflected sun can be very bright.

9. Know your limits. Learn to ski and snowboard smoothly--and in control. Stop before you become fatigued.

10. HAVE FUN!!!
