Master the Mountain Program

Tuesday Oct. 5th, 2010

Big Sky Resort Snowsports School is proud to offer the Master the Mountain Program for its 14th season this winter.  This popular ski program, designed to focus on skiing “off piste” powder, moguls, glades, and ungroomed terrain, will be held mid-week on Tuesdays and Fridays from January 4, 2011 through February 11, 2011.  Weekend sessions will meet on Saturdays from January 8 through February 12, 2011.

This six-week program was created to meet the needs of Big Sky Residents and those with extended Winter Stays in the area. The program is a fun and exciting way to meet members of the surrounding Big Sky Community while socializing, developing and renewing friendships each winter.

Discounted prices are available for the complete packages if purchased on or before December 24, 2010.  Mid-week session prices for 10 of the 12 sessions start at $480 with the ability to add the 11th and 12th bonus sessions for $24 each.  Five out of six weekend sessions will be $240 on or before December 24, with the same $24 bonus session upgrade available.  Prices after December 24 will be $550 for the weekday sessions and $276 for the Saturday.

Participants may choose between morning and afternoon sessions for both the mid-week and Saturday programs, and telemark and snowboard Master the Mountain sessions will be available on Saturday mornings only.  A minimum of four people is needed per group and the Big Sky Snowsports School will attempt to keep group size to a seven person maximum.

“The Master of the Mountain program is a great way for folks of all ability levels to learn in a somewhat non-traditional way,” said Troy Nedved, Big Sky Resort Snowsports School Director.  “These sessions are group driven and allow skiers to really get out and about to explore new territory and push themselves while they gain expert advice from our certified instructors.”
