Adult & Teen Group Lessons

instructor carving on groomed run with studentsBeginner skiers, snowboarders, telemark skiers and snowbikers will experience hands-on instruction in our newly designed beginner terrain area which will include terrain features specifically built to enhance the learning process. Higher skill level snow sliders will appreciate being able to use the features to master new skills and then immediately take them to, and explore the mountain.

The shaped snow features will guide you, and reduce fear by naturally controlling your speed, allowing you to focus on moving and having fun. Take your first steps toward becoming a member of our ski and snowboard community or acquire new skills in a fun terrain area made specifically for learning!

Booking your lessons at least 48 hours in advance is highly recommended.
