Ski and Snowboard Lessons

Find The Lesson Right for You!

It All Starts Here

Bolton Valley’s ski and ride program provides student-centered, guest-oriented, and outcome-based lessons that promote safety, fun, and learning. Lessons are the best way for beginners, both kids and adults, to be introduced to the sport. Advanced skiers and riders can take advantage of lessons to hone existing skills and acquire new ones.


Private Lessons

Choose the skills you wish to fine tune, the terrain you want to explore, and learn within your own timeframe.  Work on overall improvement, carving, racing, bumps, glades, powder, terrain park tactics, telemarking, and much more!  Remember, even advanced skiers and riders can benefit from a private lesson!

Group Lessons

We put skiers and riders of similar ability together in the same groups. Please review our Skier and Rider Ability Chart to figure out which rating you are. Knowing your rating ahead of time will help us get you into the correct group and maximize your enjoyment of the lesson. To ensure you have plenty of time to get ready for your lesson, please arrive at Bolton Valley at least 30 minutes prior to the start of your lesson. If you are going to be renting equipment, we recommend arriving an hour early to ensure you have a better lesson experience
