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 in the disciplines of alpine skiing, snowaboarding and telemarking to improve carving, racing, bumps, glades, powder, terrain park tactics, and much more!  Remember, even advanced skiers and riders can benefit from a private lesson!
