Ski & Snowboarding Lessons

Ski & Snowboarding Lessons for Adults and Children

Lessons are helpful to skiers of all levels. We recommend that all first-time skiers, as well as adults that want to brush up on their skills take a lesson.

Elk Mountain strongly recommends that new skiers take at least three group or private lessons.

Lift tickets may be purchased at the ski school desk when purchasing lessons.
