Required Advanced Skills Test
You must pass a proficiency test to demonstrate that you can ski or ride in control on Blue terrain. The test will be conducted in a marked corridor approximately 30 ft. wide and 300 ft. long set on Blue terrain by the Gallery Lift.

To PASS, an Instructor Training Student will be expected to:

  • control your speed by making linked turns across the fall line
  • make linked turns in both directions (left/right, toeside/heelside)
  • stay inside the corridor from top to bottom with no falls or stops

Students will get up to 3 attempts on the course during the testing period.

Students who do NOT pass the skills test or MISS the test must sign up and pay for Recreational Skiing/Snowboarding.
