Rope tow lifts are not well-suited for beginners. They work better for experienced skiers and riders. Even when a student gets good enough to stand and ride, they often fall or hang on and drag themselves up the hill, a really bad experience, and potential for injury. Currently our first-time students must walk uphill.
We can do better.
You’ve probably seen a conveyor lift at every other ski area you’ve visited! With generous donations from supporters like you, we will move Mt. Ashland into the modern era!
We have a strong track record of success teaching new skiers and riders with the support we receive from folks like you. However, the rope tow lift in our Learning Center does not offer the most welcoming experience for newcomers. This addition will drastically change that for the better.
With your generous support, we will be able to provide a more enjoyable experience for beginners and ensure they develop a life-long love of winter sports at Mt. Ashland.
