Upon Arrival To The Resort

Based on your lesson type & location (Park City Mountain Village or Canyons Village), please click on the appropriate tab(s) above for information on how to:

  • Pick up your lesson voucher, lift ticket and rental equipment as applicable to your purchase
  • Turn in your fully completed Liability Waiver(s) for all participants
  • Confirm the meeting area and time of your lesson

What To Wear

  • Socks - You only need ONE pair of socks. Sport specific socks are preferred, however any sock that is thin, smooth (unribbed) and over the calf will do the job. Avoid cotton.
  • Long Underwear - Synthetic or wool-blend, moisture-wicking long underwear (top and bottom) is best. Avoid cotton materials.
  • Outerwear - Ski and snowboard outerwear should be made from water-resistant or waterproof, breathable fabric and allow movement without restriction.
  • Boots - Do not leave your boots in the car (or equivalent) overnight. They will be very difficult to get into and are unlikely to warm up during the day.
  • Mittens/Gloves - Waterproof mittens or gloves are best, avoid knit variations. Not all winter gloves are waterproof, so be sure to check. In general, mittens are warmer.
  • Neck Gear - A neck buff or balaclava is recommended to have on or tucked in a pocket. Scarves are not recommended, as they can catch on the lifts and other objects.
  • Helmet - Helmets offer added protection, and are required for all lesson participants ages 17 and younger.
  • Eye Protection - Choose quality eyewear with 100% Ultra-Violet protection. Goggles are preferred on storm days. Sunglasses are preferred on warm sunny days.
  • Sun Protection - Apply sunscreen liberally and often to all exposed skin and use UV protected lip balm. The altitude and reflection of the snow from the snow increases intensity and exposure, even on cloudy days. SuperGoop! sunscreen is for sale in both Legacy Sports and Canyon Mountain Sports.
