We went here for the day. It's only an hour and a half from northern Virginia! Our 2 kids did the 4 hour CLC package and my husband took a one hour class lesson. The instructors are patient and friendly. I was impressed with my family's skiing ability after their lessons. For the kids, we checked in at the CLC building and then went over to the lower level of the main ski building where a worker outfitted my kids with all the ski gear.
