Choosing A Skill Level -- NEW!

We have switched to the standard PSIA skills ranking. Instead of confusing numeric levels, ability is now classified as NEVER-EVER, BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE or ADVANCED. If you skiied or rode with us last year, just sign up for the level indicated on your end of season certificate. Otherwise, if you are not sure what skill level you are, use these guides to find out:

Support your PTA!

Bellevue Ski School contributes a portion of each registration fee to the student's respective PTA. Help your PTA continue to support you and your classmates while having fun on the slopes!

    Shreducation Class
    Attendance at the Shreducation class is mandatory for first-time Park Pass applicants regardless of skill level. The Park Pass Shreducation class happens throughout the day at the Central Park HUB located near the bottom of Central Express at Summit Central.
