Had you already signed up?
I didn't get it either and I AM already signed up. That's probably it.
Well, I'm not signed up, didn't get the email, but am on a list for a custom group. Perhaps I didn't get the email because I'm employee thinking of going to Aspen next season...
The Keystone option is essentially the same as the Breck program--still Thurs-Sunday.
Here is the info for the 2015-16 Adult Lesson Pass. It is currently $309 and can be purchased by calling 800-842-8062 or visiting a Colorado Ski & Golf location or Boulder Ski Deals in the Front Range. The Keystone Pass Office will re-open on June 12th and could be purchased there as well. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
KEYSTONE ADULT LESSON PASS DETAILS:
• Keystone only product, lessons are non-transferable, season pass required.
• Adult Lesson Pass valid for ages 15 and older.
• Participants may redeem one lesson per day on the morning of the lesson. Lessons meet at regularly scheduled class lesson times: 9:45 am.
• Valid Thursday–Sunday, River Run Ski School only.
• Not Valid: 12/19-27, 1/16-1/17, 2/12-2/14, 3/12-3/13, 3/19-3/20, 3/26-3/27
• On your first day, stop into the River Run Ski & Ride School office to fill out a release form, a Keystone Lesson Pass agreement and to obtain a lesson ticket. After your first day you will not be required to fill out a release; however you will still need to obtain a lesson ticket.
• We will make every effort to accommodate instructor requests but reserve the right to make assignments according to business needs and policies. The final decision lies with the supervisor and not the instructor.
Winter Park has a few different options which are one day, three day, or multiple weekend programs.
Bob's Bump Jamboree
1 day camps for total mogul immersion $109/day although I've seen the price reduced for RMSP passholders
Bob's Mogul Camp
3 days with video, etc.
The other offerings are actually through the competition center instead of the ski school.

Then ski with the Competition Center’s most experienced coaches in a casual format designed for breakthroughs in skiing moguls, crud, and all variable snow conditions.

Freestyle Adult Masters Program
Written up in the Denver Post as a sure bet for adult skiers looking to continue to improve their skills and ability to ski difficult terrain, the Freestyle Masters is a unique adult ski program. The program was formed in 1989 and is going strong with over 35 members. The Freestyle Masters will teach you the skills necessary to become a stronger skier and challenge you daily. The coaching staff consists of former Pro Mogul Tour and US Ski Team athletes who know what it takes to develop all mountain and mogul skills. While you will learn new skills on moderate terrain, the coaches will progress you to more difficult terrain as you become more proficient. Skiing with the freestyle masters means you will always have a group of ski enthusiasts to ski with and ski hard.
To sum up the freestyle masters a quote from Coach Mark Kahre: "masters are focused on becoming the best skiers they can be. the passion we share for the sport has created a very close knit unit. We combine the social aspect with expert instruction. I am not aware of any other program like this."
Ideal candidate- strong intermediate skier who loves the challenge of skiing moguls and is in good physical condition. Coaching is offered three times a week, since proficiency can best be attained with regular training over a whole season.
See the link for one-day/week, unlimited, and drop-in programs.
For the master's program, I'd probably just be looking for drop-in sessions where you need to purchase 6.
Here is the article from the Denver Post on the program:
I'm not in a position to make any decisions right now until I decide on housing options for next winter.

I have been instructing club lessons at Breck for many years, and let me share my personal experiences, not speaking on behalf of Vail Resorts.
In the past one of the issues with the unlimited lessons was that we had to form new groups each day. As a result, a big part of the day was spent assessing skier's current abilities, and figuring out their goals for that day. Along with that, someone might get a pretty similar lesson multiple days in a row, as I tried to teach to the majority of the class.
When the program became more structured last season, I know a lot of people were skeptical at first. It was a big change, and a lot of people were concerned about the lack of convenience when having to return the same day each week. But then something amazing happened. By skiing the same day in what eventually became the same group for the entire season, we spent almost no time having to asses and divide students in the morning. We could also focus on long term goals over the course of the season. The feedback I received from all of my students is that they all felt they improved more in those 10 weeks than they had in the prior 10 years.
I know with change there are always compromises, but in my opinion, this has really been a change for the better. Also, if the hangup is that you get forced into the same day each week, I know the supervisor there is very accommodating to our guests' needs. If you needed to switch days he could probably help you make that happen.
