Stop! Don't Go Any Further Until You Review The Following Information Carefully
(Like, pretend you're the teacher's pet and study this stuff. There will be a quiz.)
Here at Echo, we want everyone to enjoy their visit and stay safe, which means understanding what to expect when starting out.
Here's what you need to know about mountain conditions at Echo:
1. Echo Is A Mostly Intermediate Mountain
Say it with us... Echo is a mostly intermediate mountain. Again... Echo is a mostly intermediate mountain. Keep going...
2. First-Time Guests Should Spend A Lot Of Time In The Beginner Area
Our beginner area is great for learning the basics (stopping, turning, etc.) and having fun getting to know snow sports. Skiing and snowboarding take a lot of practice! That's why we encourage our first-time guests to spend as much time in the beginner area as possible.
Please note that we recommend exercising caution when advancing to other areas of the mountain, as the transition to our beginner and intermediate runs can be quite challenging.
3. Beginner Runs Don't Necessarily Mean Easy Runs
Our beginner runs (marked by Green Circles) are Echo's easiest way down, but they are not as easy or mellow as greens at other ski and snowboard areas. Since our terrain is more advanced, riding the Hot Laps Special Triple Chair and skiing or snowboarding the terrain around it may not be practical if you're just starting out. There's no shame in spending your day in the beginner area!
4. Night Skiing May Or May Not Include The Beginner Area
Please note, not all trails are available for Night Skiing & Snowboarding. Although our beginner area may be open for Night Skiing, all other trails are intermediate terrain only (marked by Blue Squares). That means if you come for Night Skiing be prepared to navigate intermediate terrain.
