Private lessons are intended to accommodate one student and are offered in one-hour increments throughout the day. Hour-long lessons are available beginning at age six for skiers and age seven for snowboarders.

Semi-Private Lessons

Available for groups of two to four, these hour-long lessons must have students of similar skiing or snowboarding ability. Semi-private lessons are available for ages six+ and can be created by adding additional students to a private lesson.
