1 Hour Private Ski Lesson

$140.00
A sure fit way to increase your ON and OFF Mountain Skills is in a Private Lesson. A great way to work on your specific desire to learn to ski, refresh and/or hone the skills you already have. These 60 Minute sessions take place at 9:00-12:00 and 1:00-3:00 daily. There is also a 60 Minute private lesson that starts at 5 when available. All private lessons meet in the snow sports learning area 15 minutes prior to start time. ALL ability levels can take private lessons. Gain confidence, pick up a new trick or learn how to rip a once daunting trail, we have you covered. Private lessons are also a great way to create a “private group lesson” by adding on additional people to your private. This is a great way to have a fun and healthy experience with your friends or family!

Add a person to your group lesson. All participants will need to purchase tickets and rentals.

Your lesson begins with an introduction, conversation about what you would like to learn and an assessment of your ability level with your instructor.  You will then move on to a quick refresher to make sure there are no questions, then moving on to learning new skills and honing the skills you already have.
