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.
You must select at least one option from the menu above.
At Heavenly Ski & Ride School we believe that learning to ski or snowboard doesn't have to be hard. We also believe that fun isn't everything, but it's most things. We believe in hiring coaches who are teachers and not just really awesome skiers and riders, although they tend to be that too. And we believe that if you have a problem, we can solve it.

Guess what? Skiing and riding are kind of hard at first. That's because we're just not used to having our feet strapped to planks. Take a beginner lesson or two and you or your child will not only feel more comfortable with your feet strapped to planks, but you might even start feeling the early stages of addiction. This is natural. Go with it.
What to expect - based on your needs and goals:
Sure plateaus can be comfortable, but they can also get boring fast. Our coaches are experts at helping you break through your comfort zones so you can get to a better place. A place that might not seem quite as comfortable as that old plateau, but it's a heckuva lot more fun.
If you're reading this section you or your child probably are really good skiers or riders. Our expert lessons cater to those accomplished skiers and riders who want to get that much better, and you can always get better. Heck, even pros still take lessons and we're guessing you're not a pro. But if you are, would you mind signing our website? We're huge fans.
Private lessons are a wonderful thing. Whether for you or your kids, our private lessons allow our coaches to really focus on you and what you'd like to get out of it. Because sometimes it's nice to have things be all about you once in a while. But be careful, too many private lessons, and you might start feeling entitled, like you're maybe somehow better than everyone else.
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.
