Learn to Ski and Ride

Heavenly Learn to Ski & Ride
Mike Allen, Director of Heavenly Ski & Ride Schools

Welcome to the Heavenly Ski & Ride School!  I'm Mike Allen, director of Heavenly Ski & Ride School and on behalf of all our coaches and staff, welcome to Heavenly.

Classrooms don't come any more beautiful than ours and our team of professional coaches are passionate about helping you improve your skiing and riding skills. We will teach you simple and safe techniques to allow you to achieve your goals whatever they may be, from your first turns to conquering the canyons and everything in between. Your Ski lesson experience will be filled with realistic challenges, excitement, and a true sense of accomplishment that will leave you smiling for days to come.

With multiple national ski & ride team members on the Heavenly ski and ride staff, you won't find more qualified, talented or dedicated coaches anywhere. Book a lesson with one of our internationally recognized coaches and you're guaranteed to take your skiing/riding to the next level!

Private ski lessons are a great way to get one-on-one, highly-personalized attention from a coach. At Heavenly Ski and Ride School we can tailor your lesson to your own specific goals. 

We have ski and ride coaches who specialize in building confidence with our guests, others who work well with families as well as those who can take you to places you never thought you could go. Skiing or snowboarding is a great way to share a sport and the mountain environment with your spouse and children. Private lessons at Heavenly allow you to spend the day together with your family, you will not only learn how to ski or ride, you will also learn the best way to help your kids enjoy the sport.

Adult ski lessons at Heavenly will help you improve your skiing or riding skills with an expert coach. These lessons are designed to help you meet your skiing or riding goals in a fun, group environment.

Heavenly Ski and Ride School coaches are trained to evaluate your skills, understand your goals and then help you reach those goals as quickly and easily as possible. If you are not sure how you would like to improve or where you would like to go they will be able to offer you realistic suggestions to take you to the next level of your mountain experience.

Our children’s lessons help kids of all ages develop their skiing/riding abilities in a supportive learning environment that is delivered with a playful approach. A full-day children’s complete package includes lift access, rental equipment, helmet, lesson and lunch with plenty of hot chocolate!

At Heavenly we believe everyone should have an opportunity to experience the thrill of the mountain. Our adaptive lessons give guests with various disabilities the opportunity to experience the fun of skiing or riding.

With three convenient lesson locations around the mountain, each with their own line-up of varied runs and expert instructors, it's never been easier to learn to ski/ride at Heavenly!

Gondola Location:
The Gondola Ski & Ride School is perfectly located in the Heavenly Village with easy access to many casino-hotels and other accommodations. This location has the added convenience of being open evenings so guests can check in at night to avoid possible lines.

California Location:
The California Main Lodge Ski & Ride School location offers ample free parking and is also the home for the Heavenly Day Care program. This location offers access to the most green runs on the mountain and also Lakeview Lodge, with panoramic views of Lake Tahoe and delicious cuisine.

Nevada Location:
Boulder Lodge is the home for the Ski & Ride School in Nevada and is open daily for the 2012/13 season. Located near the top of Kingsbury Grade this location is ideal for anyone staying on the Nevada side of the mountain.
