Adult & Teen Group Lessons

Reservations are required at least 72 hours in advance.

Purgatory Ski & Snowboard School offers expert instruction at every level, on every terrain. Our instructors can help you reach the next level, whether it’s your first time or you’re looking to improve your technique. Beginner skiers and snowboarders will experience hands-on instruction during our group lessons 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 these features for mastering new skills before heading out to 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!
