[R494R, White Pass] added the new Cruiser Package to its ski and snowboard school lineup this winter. The package bundles instruction, rentals, and lift tickets for any three days of the season.

The Cruiser Package aims at re-introducing those who have taken a year or two hiatus from the snow. It is also geared toward improving the skills of intermediate skiers or riders.

The package may be used on any three days of the season. The days do not have to be consecutive and may be spread out through the season.

The package, which is available at the White Pass ticket booth, combines lift tickets, rentals, and lessons. The package costs $249 for adults and $189 for juniors. Adults save at least $129 buying the three items in the Cruiser Package as opposed to buying them separately.

The lessons are available daily at 10 a.m., noon, or 1:30 p.m. No reservations are necessary, but participants need to be at the instructional meeting area 10 minutes before class. Participants should plan ahead to allow for up to 90 minutes in the rental shop; more time may be needed for rental fitting on weekends and holidays.

Beginners will find the EZ Ride or EZ Ski packages more economical and better suited for terrain. A three-day beginner package runs $119 for adults or juniors.
