What should my child wear for Jackrabbits or to ski in different weather?

What time are the lights on for night skiing?
The lights on the 3km night ski trail turn on at sunset and remain on until 9 PM on weekdays.

What equipment do I need to get started?
If you are looking to rent equipment, the chalet staff will fit you with your size of skis, boots and poles. If you are looking to get your own equipment, our annual ski swap in late October is a great place to find used equipment and get sized!

What is the difference between classic and skate skiing?
Classic is the style most people start with and involves being in the groomed tracks. Classic skis are longer, while the poles are shorter. Skate skiing requires more technique and requires skis that are shorter, more supportive boots and longer poles. Both are equally as fun, feel free to ask the chalet staff for more information!

How and why should I wax my skis? 
Although some skis are branded as waxless, they still require glide wax and storage wax in order to keep them in the best shape possible. The chalet offers waxing clinics and ski waxing.
