We suggest arriving about one hour before the lesson time, especially if you will be renting equipment and over the holidays. Be at the lesson meeting place 15 minutes prior to the lesson start time.
As you approach from the parking lots, the Jim Bridger Lodge will be straight ahead at the top of a flight of stairs. Come directly to the Snowsports Learning Center desk, just inside the front doors. Our friendly and attentive staff will set you up with lift tickets, lesson tickets, and rentals.
If you will be checking a child into Playcare’s First Tracks and need to rent equipment, we will give you a rental voucher so that you may pick up the child’s equipment along with the rest of the family’s here in the Jim Bridger Lodge prior to dropping the child off at the Playcare Center.
Reservations are required for the Montana Learn to Ski in 3!, child care, First Tracks and multi-week programs. Though not required, reservations are suggested for other lessons.
That will depend on the day’s weather. Dress in layers, you can always remove extra clothing if you are too warm. New synthetic base layers will keep you warm and dry. Top with a turtle neck, polarfleece sweater, parka, ski or snowboard pants, hat, goggles or sunglasses, mittens or gloves, a pair of ski socks and sunscreen! Helmets are available for rent. Mittens are warmer than gloves and should be waterproof. A trick the pro’s use to keep their feet warm is to change into a second, dry pair of ski socks at lunch.
Extra clothing, purses, backpacks, street shoes can be stored in the ski & Bag Check in the Jim Bridger Lodge or in coin lockers in either base lodge. Cafeteria style food is available in each base lodge and sit down dining at Jimmy B’s in Bridger Lodge. If you forget an item, the Ski Shop carries ski socks, sunglasses, goggles, hats & gloves, sunscreen, lip balm and other accessories that are sometimes neccesities.
Group and Private Lessons meet at the Snowsports Meeting Place banner at the bottom of the Snowflake lift and adjacent to the Saddle Peak Lodge. Lessons meet 15 minutes prior to the start time. Most Youth and Adult multi-week programs meet nearby. Please have your lesson ticket in hand and your equipment on.
Right back where the lesson started at the bottom of Snowflake lift.
If you have rented your equipment for multiple days, use the ski and bag check in the Jim Bridger Lodge to store your gear overnight. This is also a good place to store your backpacks, street shoes, and extra clothes which you might wish to access during the day, sparing a trip to the car.
