Course Description:

FITN 109 Downhill Skiing and Snowboarding Instruction. The course runs for six (6) consecutive weeks on Monday evenings at Greek Peak starting 1/27/2014 and ending 3/3/2014. The course includes a Night Lift Ticket, Lesson, and Rentals if needed. It is important that your schedule permits attendance on this night throughout the season

How the Course Works:

Go to the Ticket Window in the Katalima building (across from the Welcome Center), present your college ID card, and state that you are participating in the College Credit Ski/Snowboard Program. Your attendance will be recorded and you will receive a lift ticket and rental pass (if needed). Lift tickets are good from 4:00-9:00pm. Failure to sign in could result in an “absent” for the lesson and affect your grade. You must wear your ticket during the program even if you have purchased a season pass.

The lesson meeting spot is located next to the Alpha Slope (Beginner’s Chair Lift). Please be there 10 minutes early.

The lesson times are as follows:

  • Beginner Lessons are at 4:30pm
  • Intermediate or Advanced Lessons are at 6:00pm

Course Registration:

Students must register with TC3’s Health, Fitness, Lifetime Sports & Recreation Education Dept. and also with Greek Peak prior to the start of the Course.

To register with Greek Peak, go to the Community Pass online registration system.

Course Fees and Payment:

This course must be paid through the TC3 Bursar’s Office.

Program $242
If rental equipment is needed, an additional $76 Rental Fee must be paid directly to Greek Peak.


Be sure to dress warmly. Outer clothing should be windproof and snow shedding. It is better to over dress and shed additional layers than to lack the appropriate clothing.

A make up lesson may not be completed on your scheduled lesson day and must be completed no later than the last day of your college’s program as listed below.
NOTE:  Make-up lessons can be attended before or after a missed lesson. Bus transportation is not provided to attend make up lessons.

The opportunity to perform a make up lesson will start after each college’s 4th scheduled lesson and end on each college’s 6th lesson day.

  • Mondays All Levels 7:00pm
  • Fridays All Levels 7:00pm
  • Saturdays All Levels 4:30pm
  • Sundays All Levels 4:30pm

Make up Lesson Procedure:

Upon arrival at Greek Peak, go to the main Ticket Window in the Katalima building to sign in and pick up your lift ticket and rental form, if needed. Students using bus transportation will receive their lift ticket and rental form on the bus. Then, proceed to the Lesson Meeting Spot and explain that you need to take a make up lesson. The instructor will give you a card to fill in with your name, College, Student ID # and Date. Be sure the card has been returned to the Instructor to receive credit for your make up lesson.
