Group Leaders

GROUP LEADER RESPONSIBILITIES: What do I do as a Group Leader?

  1. All you need is 15 people to receive unbelievable savings. Bring your church group, school group, work group, or just a group of friends. We'll make your outing tons of fun!

  3. Upon arrival, the group leader will collect all money and arrange for one payment for the whole group, for all lift tickets, rentals, and lessons. The leader may come to the chalet ticketing desk to complete all transactions. How well you are organized will determine the length of check-in.
  4. Arrange for your group to meet in the Giants Ridge chalet, or a place that you as a leader would suggest. You (the leader) may then proceed to the chalet ticketing desk and complete all transactions.
  5. After each skier or snowboarder in the group has been issued a lift ticket, if they are renting ski or snowboard equipment, they may proceed to the rental shop to pick up their equipment.
  6. Lessons: If group lessons have been purchased, please check with the chalet ticketing desk for times, have your group meet meet at the Ski School.
  7. One FREE lift ticket will be offered for every 20 paid. Complimentary tickets have no money value and are not transferable to rentals or lessons. Rentals are not included with the complimentary lift ticket.
