A one-of-a-kind program for first-time skiers and riders!


Skiing and Snowboarding for All

Program Registration now open!

Bob Beverly was a Steamboat Springs native and a Colorado Ski Hall of Fame inductee who was passionate about bringing skiing to the Western Slope. Bob was a central figure in the opening and development of Powderhorn Mountain Resort, and desired for skiing and snowboarding to be affordable and accessible to everyone.

We honor his legacy with the Bob Beverly Free Learn-to-Ski program. For a limited time each winter, guests who have never skied and never snowboarded can try up to three days of a single discipline with free rentals, tickets, and group lessons.

Program Requirements

Due to high demand and limited capacity, this program is open to first-timers only.

Participant must be 8 years or older.

Participant cannot have skied before.

Participant cannot have snowboarded before.

Please honor our terms so we can introduce as many new riders to the sport as possible! If you have skied or snowboarded before, we would be glad to help you book a private or group lesson with discounted lift tickets and rentals.
