- Take advantage of one of Silver's many stay-and-play lodging packages.
"We are bringing back our popular Flexible 5 Pak this year," says Neal Scholey, Silver Mountain's director of sales and marketing. This sale ends on Jan. 14, 2017, so don't wait too long to commit. The program is geared for ages 7 and up, and includes five lessons with an instructor, equipment rentals and lift tickets. Graduates receive a season pass for the remainder of the 2016-17 season and 50 percent off a pass for the following season. The lessons are an hour and a half in length, and the program is only available to skiers and snowboarders with no prior experience. "Our brush-cutting team on the mountain has been hard at it, grooming the slopes so we can get more terrain open earlier this season," says Scholey.
MAKING THE MOST OF IT
Silver Mountain is more than just a ski mountain. There are so many additional activities, including taking the gondola, an adventure in itself. You can slide down one of the many lanes of their snow tubing park, relax in a village-side hot tub back down in Gondola Village, or take in the attractions inside Silver Rapids, Idaho's largest indoor water park. Take advantage of one of their many stay-and-play lodging packages, for skiers and non-skiers alike. Check out their website (silvermt.com) for current offerings.
While the parents are away, the kids will play. Silver's All Mountain Kids Club is, by far, the best deal on the mountain. In this seven-week program, all levels are accepted and encouraged. Students will enjoy the same instructor every week in this fast-moving development program. There are different packages, based on kids' needs and whether they need tickets and equipment. Book now, as this one fills up fast. Registration ends Dec. 31. Check out Silver Mountain's website for details.
