Snow Sports Schools


Ski and Snowboard Schools at Snow Summit offer lessons that are fun, laid back and meet your needs at any level. We offer professionally taught snow sports lessons for all ages from beginner ski and snowboarding instruction through expert levels using a traditional method of teaching that focuses on individual attention. We are focused on keeping your experience simple and exciting while helping you develop confidence and skill. A quick base-area learning session familiarizes students with their new gear before riding the moving carpet or chair lift, which slows to a crawl for loading and unloading.

Your ski or snowboard instructor will guide you on a self-paced progression sculpted to make learning fun and easy. Professional instructors work with you until you grasp a command of the skill. At any level of proficiency, your instructor will show you how to blend your personal capabilities with the requirements of negotiating the mountain.

Skiing and snowboarding creates unforgettable experiences. We encourage beginners to take a series of lessons from our ski and snowboarding schools and continue to progress in the sport to build wonderful memories.
