Ski/Ride Hill and Lessons


Frisco Adventure Park Ski & Ride Hill

The Frisco Adventure Park offers a comfortably small ski/ride hill experience perfect for never-ever skiers and folks who have not skied in a few years. The hill is uncrowded, wallet friendly, close to parking and a cozy lodge.

The Adventure Park ski/ride hill also partners with Copper Mountain to offer affordable beginner lessons to get skiers or snowboarders (for ages 8 and older) comfortable enough to get on the “big hill”. All you need is ski or snowboard equipment and a love of snow. While ski and snowboard rentals are not available at the Frisco Adventure Park, there are many ski and snowboard rental shops in Frisco, just minutes from the Adventure Park.
