Private Ski Instruction

To maximize your time with your instructor, sign up for a private ski lesson where you’ll work on techniques that are personalized to your abilities. Become more confident in powder. Carve powerful turns. Ski the Daly Chutes. Whatever your goal, our certified Ski Instructors will provide you with all the tips you need to improve at your own pace.

Private ski lessons are available for all ages and advance reservations are recommended, 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.

We recommend the following private lesson guidelines to make your vacation more enjoyable:

  • We recommend private lessons be taken by students of similar ages and ability zones
  • Only standard lesson times may be reserved in advance
  • Customized lessons are sold on a daily basis and are subject to availability
  • Children three years of age or younger must have one-on-one instruction

Prices are based on a per instructor rate.
