There's much to learn here. So, take your time, look around, and understand all there is to know about us. We hope you find what you need to know, and take a moment to drop us a line if there's more we can help answer.
Each lesson is 45 minutes, with only one person on the machine at a time. The entire lesson will NOT be spent on the machine (typical will be about 20-30 minutes). The 45 minute time includes finding the proper equipment, review of proper form in the mirrors, and some off machine education.
The ski machine is very effective - 10 minutes is equivalent to an entire run on the mountain so some customers can tire quickly. Instructors will break up the ski time with other forms of education to ensure a time well spent.
A waiting area is available for parents, observers, and siblings.
Just yourself and some comfortable clothing! We have boots and skis/boards, but you may want to bring some socks. They don't have to be ski socks, but you'll want protection inside the boots.
You also are welcome to bring your own boots to try. Did you just get new ones and want to try them before spending the full day on the mountain? Bring them on in!
We have standard bindings for skis and boards, but if you have any specific questions, please email email@example.com for further information.
Helmets are optional but encouraged. We have extras, but again, you are welcome to bring your own.
You MUST use our skis and snowboards. They have a special coating and are designed to maintain our carpet. Outside skis will not be permitted on the ski machine.
Each private lesson is $45, equipment and fees are included.
We do not offer bulk purchase pricing or group lessons at this time.
The short answer is no. To provide the quality of lesson Ski Maxx expects, each 45 minutes is dedicated to an individual.
However, should there be someone who doesn't want to go the full 45 minutes, or decides to take a significant break, you are welcome to work with your instructor directly to see how to fill the remaining time apporopriately.
Reminder that not all 45 minutes will be spent on the machine - this time includes verbal instruction, gear fitting, and stationary practice.
For the safety of all, more than one person should not be on the machine with a single instructor.
Skiers and boarders must be able to stand and be very stable on their own, without parent intervention. Typical minimum age is 4. Instructors may recommend waiting until an older age if deemed appropriate at time of lesson.
There are support bars on the slope to offer stability. At the base of the slope there is a large mirror so you can watch your technique and get real-time feedback.
The instructor carries a hand-held, immediate stop button, at all times, and can stop the slope at any time. The slope is made of soft carpet fibers that hurt a lot less than falling on the cold snow and ice.
The ski machine also rotates at various speeds. Rest assured that instructors will match your ability!
We do not offer rentals or purchase at this time. If you would like recommendations for local rental shops, please talk to your instructor or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Birthday (or other celebration!) parties are offered! Please email email@example.com for more details.
As we continue to finalize our packages, they will be added to the website.
Yes. Before use of the machine, each skier and boarder will need to sign the Agreement and Liability Waiver. Without this approval, use of the ski machine is not permitted.
A Social Media decision is also needed per person. This does not prevent the use of the machine, but does allow us to satisfy your needs prior to any promotions that may end up in print, on the website, or any other use deemed necessary for the advertisement of Ski Maxx.
Appointments need to be finalized 2 days in advance. Instructors will use the day before to come up with a plan, and if your appointment is added last minute, there's a chance no one is on site to let you in.
We do not plan to cancel for weather, but if the weather is bad enough, please watch for further instruction from Ski Maxx. It is likely we will call/text or email to reschedule.
Before the 2 days, appointments can be rescheduled online as needed.
If you would like to schedule a lesson within the 2 day window, just give us a call! We’ll be happy to find some time that works. (719) 505-2167.
Payment is due at time of service.
YES! We love our military and first responders!
