Normally an adult beginner would not need a lift pass on the first day of skiing as we make use of the free lifts available at the base of the slopes.
On day two of lessons we normally use the paying ski lifts as we adapt to the progression of students on slightly steeper gradients.
From day two of lessons participants would require a full lift pass.
Our advice would be to purchase the six day lift pass as part of a package with lessons at the start of the week. You will benefit from a significant reduction on the price of the lift pass. (Equivalent to the cost of a 4 day adult lift pass if purchased directly from the ticket office, with the benefit of skiing 6 days)
Also with a 6 day lift pass you can benefit from using all lifts from day one, for example if you progress well or you would like to visit the glacier or restaurants and bars further up the mountain.
