Buy PFS/LTS Program Online

These PFS & LTS multi-day programs can be redeemed throughout the 2018-19 snow season on non-consecutive days.  Complete our 3-day program and your card will get you frequent skier ticket discounts for the rest of the season (please note this card does not include the first or sixth day free).  Single and multi-day programs are available daily and may be purchased in person at the Snow Sports Desk, upper level of the Northwoods Lodge.  Reservations are not necessary. 

Lessons meet on snow at 9:45am or 1:15pm (additional 10:45am option Saturday, Sunday, and daily during holiday periods).  Choose from the packages above or reserve a Private Lesson for customized one-on-one coaching! Learn more about how to plan for your first day out.

*The ticket on your first day is a lower mountain ticket.  For multi-day options, tickets on additional days provide full mountain access. Lift included with PFS/LTR programs vary between the three mountains.

Note that all lesson programs require participants (ages 17 & under) to be wearing a helmet. If you purchase your program with rentals, a helmet is included in the package. If children are using their own equipment, they must bring their helmet or plan to rent one upon arrival. Thank you for your cooperation toward our effort of increasing safety on the slopes. Visit LidsOnKids.org to learn more about helmets and snow sports safety!
