Children's Ski & Snowboard Lessons

Update 4/6/2016: Heavenly's Ski & Ride School will be closing the afternoon of April 17th. Although the resort will be operating through April 24th, lessons will not be available this final week of the season.


Ok fine, we’re a school, but we’re a really fun school. The kind of school that teaches kids confidence and how to do stuff they've seen in video games! We’re also the kind of school that makes sure your kids have fun no matter what. Real, genuine fun. The kind of fun that can even turn an eye rolling, text obsessed teenager into the sweet, fun, kid they were before puberty hit.

Track your progress in Ski and Ride School with EpicMix Academy! View your skills and certified pins from your personal dashboard, plus add family members to your account to view their progress.

Kids are naturals at falling down. This makes them the perfect beginning skiers and riders. Our kids beginner lessons are designed to take your beginner and make him or her slightly less natural at falling down and much more natural at standing up, moving forward, turning and (importantly) stopping. But really it's about having a ton of fun while doing all of that stuff.

What to expect - based on your needs and goals:

  • Give you the skills to make you successful
  • Learning about your equipment and the mountain environment
  • A safe environment for your learning
  • A fun and social experience
  • You'll find the addictive nature of sliding on the mountain

Kids love being great at things. Not too surprising since they're just miniature people and people love being great at things. The fastest way to get great at something is with a few lessons. Our kids' intermediate lessons will give your kids the skills and the confidence to get to the next level, where they're more skilled, more confident, and having more fun. Oh but don't call it school. Miniature people don't love school the way they love being great.

What to expect - based on your needs and goals:

  • Find your own comfort and enjoyment on the mountain
  • Advancing from Green runs into Blue runs
  • Refining your fundamentals and discovering new places
  • Developing confidence in a social and fun environment

There's a point when your kids will get so good you can't teach them yourself anymore. Sometimes that happens when they're teenagers, sometimes it's when they're five. Well, whenever your kids get to the point they're doing tricks that make your head spin, our instructors will be there to pick up where you left off and to take them the rest of the way to where they want to be. Whether that's international competition or just really showing up their parents.

What to expect - based on your needs and goals:

  • Identifying your strengths and growth areas for continued improvement
  • Exploring any challenge on the mountain including trees, moguls, steeps, powder, racing, carving, crud, or park
  • Chasing new friends down new challenges
  • You'll be with top coaches exploring places you never knew existed

Kids love attention. They also love learning new things. Combine the two with one of our private lessons. Our instructors will help your child to meet his or her goals in a more personal, more effective way. You know, like by actually learning their name and not just calling them the kid in the green hat.

What to expect - based on your needs and goals:

  • You can structure your private lesson however you choose, whether it's fun-for-the-whole-family or your own private mountain experience
  • Improving at your own speed, where your comfort is number one
  • Exclusive ski school lift lanes provide quick access to the slopes
  • You go where you want to go when you want to go there

There's a Ski & Snowboarding lesson out there for everyone. Use our lesson finder to help find the best lessons available for you, to make your visit that much better.
