Helpful Hints

Preparing for your trip

  • Getting ready to go skiing or snowboarding can take a lot of energy!
  • We recommend stretching and exercising before your trip so that you are in shape for your experience on the slopes of Aspen Snowmass
  • Practice putting on your gear, like a snow jacket, snow pants and snow boots
  • Practice putting on a helmet as every program with Challenge Aspen requires participants to wear a helmet
  • If you’ve never skied or snowboarded before, lessons will begin on the ‘magic carpet’, which is similar to a moving walkway
  • Try using a moving walkway before you arrive in Snowmass to get accustomed to the sensation of moving on one. Moving walkways can be commonly found in large airports or shopping malls
