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.

Parent/Child Lesson Clinic

For parent/guardian and one child age 3-5. 90 minute lesson. Parent/Guardian must be at at least level 3. Lesson times based on instructor availability. Objective: The instructor's goal is to teach the parent/guardian how to work with the child confidently and creatively and safely introducing them to the joy of skiing. Lesson plan will utilize PSIA techniques.

First-time skiers, established skiers, or snowboarders looking to learn or fine-tune their skills can do so with a lesson from a member of the Elk Mountain Ski School.
