GROUP + PRIVATE LESSONS

Group lessons are back for the 2022-23 season!

Skiing & snowboarding are athletic sports that require a bit more skill to do successfully than riding on a sled. Learning from your friend or spouse can be stressful for both of you. Let our trained and certified Ski & Ride School instructors take the stress out of learning and get you sliding in the right direction. Whether you’re just starting out or wanting to reach the next level, we make it simple, easy & effective.

We strongly recommend booking your lessons in advance at least 2 days before your arrival, especially if you are taking a weekend lesson, or arriving during Christmas week, MLK or President's weekend or Spring Break in March.

Select an age group below to see the lesson options for those ages. Products and pricing for the 2022-23 season are subject to change.

Private Lesson
In this private lesson your young child will spend 2.5 hours with their very own Ski & Ride School instructor, on either skis or a snowboard, taking breaks as necessary and learning at their own ability and pace. Whether it’s their first time on equipment or already has some know-how, you can have the peace of mind that they are being cared for, having fun, and learning something new.
