Learn to use your equipment in a warm, comfortable setting. Discover the basics of stopping, turning, and more in preparation for a fun day in the snow.

In the first lesson, beginners will become familiar with equipment, learn to stop, control speed, balance, edge control, and more by skiing or snowboarding, usually about 5-10 times, from the top to the bottom of our stationary carpeted slope.

In the second lesson, most beginners are ready to go onto the revolving carpet and further the skills they started to develop in the first lesson, AND learn to turn left and right.

Most people take the first two lessons together, as in the same hour, continuing on with the second lesson right after the first one. Each 25 minute lesson thereafter on our revolving carpet simulates a full day of exercise on the slope.


If you understand the basics of skiing or snowboarding, our lessons will help you develop the skills necessary to become more advanced. Learn to carve turns with a quiet upper body, which will help you to be more efficient, use less energy and have better control.

Skiers - try our Shaped Skis: Learn the subtle differences in technique using shaped skis requires and learn why most skiers love the feeling of carving turns with less effort on shaped skis.


Experienced skiers will improve and fine-tune existing skills. Get a great work-out with exercises for bumps, steeps, powder and racing. Top racers use the revolving carpet to hone their edge sensitivity, improve muscle memory, and to develop "quick feet" for racing. Use the same specific muscles and motions as skiing and snowboarding.

We recommend that our students arrive 15-20 minutes before your appointment. We can not make up time for late arrivals. 48 hours notice is required to cancel an appointment to give us time to fill your reserved time with another person.

You should wear long pants that you can bend your knees and be flexible in, such as sweatpants or warm-ups, or some loose, baggy pants that cover the knees and allow for movement and exercise that snow sports require; a long sleeve T shirt, and of course a pair of full length socks (NOT ankle socks!), such as white, cotton athletic socks to absorb sweat and cover your lower shins). AND bring a bottle of drinking water.

    A 5 Lesson program of customized learning sessions is a great way to prepare for a fun vacation! We teach everyone with Private Instruction. Our lesson programs have helped many people to get on and off the beginner's hill quickly, and to enjoy the top of the mountain in their first days on the snow. We work with you on your total technique to help you master a higher skill level.

    We recommend a 5 lesson program for most people if you really want to learn to ski or snowboard and create some good habits that will be more likely to transfer to the snow when you get there. If you don't have the time or budget for 5 lessons, 3 is the next best way to go. Even 1 or 2 lessons is better than none and will help you to enjoy your first day on the snow each year.

    Skiers and Snowboarders of all abilities will see their skills advance quickly through these goal-orientated programs based on progressive instruction techniques. Each lesson will build upon skills previously learned. We recommend a private lesson program as a great start to have a FUN vacation!

    **Group rates available for groups of 8 or more by request. (ie parties, Girl and Boy Scouts, ski clubs and race teams, ...)

    Here's a chance to practice what you've learned and get a great workout. These 25-minute sessions are designed to add "quality mileage" time to improve your existing skills and provide a great workout. Get in shape for the slopes. No more sore muscles on your next ski vacation! These sessions are available to students who have completed one or more of our lessons on the revolving carpet.
