Ski & Snowboard School FAQs
We recommend arriving to June Mountain 1.5 hours prior to your scheduled lesson time. If you are able, you can pick up your rental equipment the afternoon prior to the day of your lesson from 2–3:30PM.
Lessons meet in or near the June Meadows Chalet, which sits at the top of Chair J1. You will also pick up any rental equipment at the Chalet.
AGES 3–4: Meet inside the June Kids Room, 1st floor of the Chalet.
AGES 5-12 / ADULTS: Meet out on the snow, directly in front of the Chalet at the large green flag that says Ski & Snowboard School.
What To Bring
Helmet (for children 13 and under)

Neck gaiter (for cold or stormy days)

Water-resistant pants & jackets
WHAT TO WEAR
Because June is located at a high elevation, weather conditions can vary in a short period of time and the sun can be harmful to your skin and body if you're not prepared. Layering is the best way to maximize your comfort if/when the weather shifts.
Avoid cotton fabrics, as they retain moisture from snow and perspiration. Start with a moisture-wicking inner layer (such as wool or silk) and add an insulating middle piece (such as a fleece, sweater or vest). Top off with a wind and water resistant shell layer to protect you from the elements.
New skiers and snowboarders may spend multiple days in the beginner area. They will learn how to properly fit their boots, dress for winter activities, stop, turn, and be introduced to the responsibility code. For snowboarders this means sliding and stopping on both heel and toe edge. Snowboarders will also need to be linking turns (heel to toe and toe to heel) prior to getting on the chair lift. For skiers this means stopping and turning on command. Once the class is making turns in both directions with control and confidence, they will be introduced to the chair lift and green runs.
Competent skiers and snowboarders will refine techniques on blue runs, increase terrain variety, and follow the responsibility code. This may include introduction to off-piste, terrain park, SMART Style, and ATML.
High-end skiers and snowboarders will work on improving technical skills and efficiency on black runs and off-piste. This may include intermediate terrain park tricks, SMART Style and ATML. They will be expected to use the responsibility code throughout the day.
