In normal snow conditions beginners will not need a lift pass on the first day of lessons.
From day 2 of lessons most beginners will need a full resort lift pass to access the necessary gradient of slope to allow further learning and progression.
Our advice would be to purchase the six day lift pass as part of a package with snowboard lessons at the start of the week. You will benefit from a significant reduction on the price of the lift pass. (Equivalent to the cost of a 4 day adult lift pass purchased directly at the main central ticket office )
A full lift pass can also be used on all lifts and at all times even without ski/ snowboard equipment, for example to visit the glacier, ice caves , Pano bar, Venosc village as examples.
