Max 4 Instruction

Improve your skiing in the comfort of a small-group setting with a maximum of four students per group. Our popular Max 4 ski lessons emphasize constructive techniques to help new and experienced skiers achieve better skills. Skiers are grouped by ability, comfort level and lesson goals.

Advance reservations are recommended for Max 4 lessons, especially during busy periods and holidays (December holidays, Martin Luther King weekend, Presidents' Day week and the month of March). Please note: Lift tickets are not included in the lesson price.

Receive personalized attention and individual feedback in a small-group setting. This is our unique alternative to a large-group lesson. Ski Instructors focus on technique and skiing goals to assist skiers in achieving better skills. Participants are grouped by skiing ability, comfort level and lesson goals. Max 4 lessons can be booked in advance and are sold daily on a space-available basis. Maximum of four students per group. Must be 18 years and older to participate.
