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...

I have not signed up yet. Weighing my options which also include Keystone and also several of the Winter Park programs.
post #95 of 105

Let us know what those options are...

In my experience, they have never once managed to send an email to the whole audience.

I guess they need to implement the dynamic pricing for ski school.  Then maybe they'd have the revenue they need for some decent IT systems.

If they're looking for someone to write the software, I'm available ....

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 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.




All Terrain Adult Program

Are your kids skiing faster than you? 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. This is a program that will explore the mountain at your pace accomplishing your skiing goals. Get ready to take advantage of new overnight snow, or maybe new tactics in a NASTAR course, because we’ll be skiing All Terrain!

Not a Parent? Not a problem! Join the Adult All Terrain Program for a true all-mountain experience. Don’t plateau; go downhill!

2015 Dates:

Session 1- Saturdays or Sundays  Jan 10 thru Feb 8

Session 2- Saturdays or Sundays Feb 21 thru Mar 22

Cost:  $300/session, $500 for both. Drop-in days Jan 11 & Feb 22 $50/day, subtracted from session fees if then enrolled. Season pass not included.





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.

Also, if you're interested in the Babes on Bumps part, here is the information:


Registration for the 2015/6 Babes on Bumps Season is now open!  Please visit our website BabesonBumps.org for On-line Registration and additional information on the season.  A printable registration form is also attached.  The fee is again $25 which covers the organization's administrative costs, instructor gifts and the end-of-year party.

With the changes in the Breckenridge Lesson Club, Registration for Babes on Bumps will occur between July 1st and July 31st this year (groups announced mid to late August.) This early registration allows us to 'free-up' those instructors for whom we may not have a class.  In addition, if we are not able to form a full group, it enables us to let the potential members know well in advance.  (e.g. If there are less than 8 requests for a specific level/day, we will not be able to form a custom group.)  Those requesting that level/day will have enough time to decide if they want to participate in non-Babes lessons or ask for a refund from the ski school.
As in the past, Babes on Bumps is organizing our women-only groups of 8 or more members for Thursday and Fridays. Because of the new structure of the pass, these "Custom Groups" will not have substitutes (e.g. if only 6 of your 8 group members can attend a session, the group will ski with 6 people) Therefore, there is no 'Substitute' role in Babes this year.  
A few additional things to note:
  • To participate in Babes on Bumps, both a 2015/16 Season Lift Pass and a ‘Ski & Ride Lesson Club” Pass must be purchased from Breckenridge Ski Resort (On sale at the current price until July 31st)
  • Thursday Classes will be held:  
    Warm-Ups:  December 3, 10, 17
    Regular Season:  January 7, 21, 28 and February 4, 18, 25 and March 3
  • Friday Classes will be held:  
    Warm-Ups:  December 4, 11, 18
    Regular Season:  January 8, 22, 29 and February 5, 19, 26  and March 4
  • If you sign up for a Babes group, you are committing to attending 5 of the 7 regular season sessions, including at least 1 of the first two regular season sessions if you were not able to attend the warm-up sessions.
  • The Ski School will be distributing a survey in the fall asking questions about skiing abilities, instructor and terrain preferences.  If you are participating in the Babes Program, you will simply indicate "Babes on Bumps Custom Program"
  • A group MUST have a minimum of 8 members to be considered pre-formed.  All others will be grouped according to self-assessed levels and instructor input. 
    • If all members of your preformed group and your instructor want to meet on a day other than Thursday/Friday, please indicate on which day you are meeting on your registration form
Hope to see you on the Mountain this season!
Babes on Bumps Team

post #105 of 105

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.
