2021 Season Update
Hello Lyon Families!
We are reaching out to let you know Stevens Pass is NOT extending us a contract for the 2020-21 season. That means we will not be operating our regular season lessons as we have in years past.
Due to restrictions to ski area management in the time of a pandemic, Stevens was unable to determine how they could meet their COVID-related requirements in light of the additional complexity the concession school model requires. For instance as, 90% of the concession school business is youth lessons, and the COVID requirements for working with children require no physical contact, we can all understand how difficult it is to contemplate an instruction model the would allow us to teach beginners and young children.
• We are NOT closing Lyon Ski School.
• We have been told this is a single year, COVID-related decision by Stevens Pass/Vail, and are optimistic and excited by the new opportunities this offers us to retool, revamp, and improve our product offerings for the future.
• We will continue to offer programs through our camps division.
• We have a number of additional, new ideas for Lyon Ski School in 2020-21 we will communicate with you as we roll them out.
What does that mean for you this season?
The deadline for purchasing discounted Vail season’s passes is fast approaching. Purchasing a Vail season’s pass now will give you the best price and best chance for reserving weekend and holiday dates for your visits.
Steven's Pass has not determined what, if any, lessons they will be offering this year.
What does that mean for our ski school family and community?
We will be reaching out from time to time with information about camps and about Lyon Ski School. We will not be monitoring the phone line and email regularly.
We look forward to skiing with you again next season. We very much hope to see you on the mountain enjoying skiing with your family.
Thank you for being a customer of Lyon Ski School.
