    For those of us prefering to make an early start on the slopes and beat the ski school rush, what time do the lifts first start taking skiers?

    The times vary from resort to resort, and from lift to lift. Go to the resort of your choice's website. They will be listed there.

    As a general rule, lifts close to the base open at 8-30 or 9-00. Lifts further out may open later, and usually close earlier.

    Everything is typically posted as open for loading public at 8:30 except International which is posted as 9:00. Falls Express loads pre-arranged school groups who have 8:30 lessons at 8:15.
