Do you have Lessons?
No, Echo does not have a traditional ski or ride school.
We have a slightly different take on learning we call Echo Mountain Ambassadors.
We know not everyone wants to pay a whole bunch of money to try their hand (really, feet) at Skiing or Snowboarding and have an instructor telling them exactly what to do and when. Sometimes you want a little more freedom. You want a little more time to figure it out on your own, and you want a little more control in when and how you're learning. We're big fans of progressing at your own pace so our Ambassadors are here to help with just that.
Echo Mountain Ambassadors are your very own team of coaches, cheerleaders and all around hype squad. You can find them throughout the beginner area and near the Lodge. Head to the mountain to get started and when you hit a wall or need a little assistance, just ask someone in a Green and Navy Echo jacket for some pointers, tips, and suggestions to help you get over that next hurdle. They can also help with getting that perfect angle for Instagram, TikTok or wherever else you might be influencing your peeps.
Now, to be totally clear, they aren't instructors and it's definitely not a lesson. If you're looking for a guided, very hands on experience going through specific progressions and techniques, this isn't that. If that's what you're in search of, check out the Lesson offerings at some of our neighbor ski areas as they have some great programs!
That said, if you're wanting to figure some things out on your own and give skiing or snowboarding a shot, the Ambassadors are a FREE offering included with your Lift Ticket. For more information on our ambassador program check out this page.
After you read through the Ambassador page, you can also prep for your visit by watching some YouTube Tutorial videos!
