We suggest you sign up in advance so you don't miss the chance to join.

Registration is at the Hausberg and you can pick up your skis, snowboards, and equipment ahead of time. This saves time in the morning. There are lockers at the lodge so you don't need to carry your equipment back and forth to the Hausberg. To sign up please fill out the SnowSports Instruction form and include your confirmation number so we can attach your snowsports instructions to your reservation. The four-day package is the most affordable option and gives you adequate time to actually improve on the slopes. The ski instruction programs start on select dates. If you are participating, please check in the day prior to the program start date so you can register.
