The safest and most fun way for a family to ski or snowboard together! We’ll pair you up with an instructor who will teach to everyone in the group.  This is a great option for families who want to stick together to learn the sport. Please keep in mind that this is lesson will progress at the pace of the child. If the adults do not want to be slowed down, we recommend separate private lessons.

Requirements: Children must be at least 8 years old.

Group Lessons

For ages 8+, Group lessons are a great way to learn a new sport and meet new people. Over the course of two-hours, group lessons will introduce you to your equipment, cover the fundamentals and movements of the sport, and aim to get you sliding and stopping safely on the snow. If you feel uncomfortable in a group setting, or would like more personalized instruction, we recommend a private lesson.

At this time, Group Lessons are available for day of purchase only.

What could be better than learning to ski with new friends? Children are placed in groups based on age and ability level. Our ski instructors are trained to meet your children’s needs. They know when it’s time for a break, a motivational snowball fight to keep spirits up or tips to improve their student’s skiing/snowboarding technique.
