Looking to book a ski lesson?

Kids_skiBreckenridge’s Ski and Ride School offers a variety of programs to help fit your specific needs for becoming a better skier or snowboarder. There are 3 separate ski schools located across Breckenridge; The Village, Beaver Run (both located on Peak 9), and The Peak 8 School.

For those staying at Grand Timber Lodge or Gold Point we’d recommend the Beaver Run School for convenience and it’s also a much smaller school than The Village which can get hectic at times. For those staying at Grand Lodge on Peak 7, The Peak 8 School is just one stop away on the Gondola.

For Children:

Typically classes are split between age groups (4-6 & 7-14) as well as skill level. It is important for parents to have a general idea of their child’s skill set so that they are placed in the correct class. If you’re unsure of your child’s skill level the instructors will issue a series of tests to determine the correct class for your child. Other than Private lessons, all types of lessons will run for a full day from 9am-3:30pm which includes lunch.

There are 3 different types of lessons offered for children; Regular Lessons, Ultimate 4s, and Private Lessons.

Regular Lesson – $200/child

  • This is the most basic lesson package which includes a lift ticket and lunch at the school for your child. Class sizes may vary from 2-10 children depending on volume for that day. For these types of lessons you can generally expect larger class sizes for lower skill levels and smaller class sizes for higher skill levels. If you have a child with higher skill many times they can end up with a Private like atmosphere for the price of a regular lesson.

Ultimate 4 Lesson – $310/child

  • The Ultimate 4 package offers a Private Lesson atmosphere for almost half the price. With this package your child is guaranteed to be in a group no larger than 4 children, a lift ticket, and lunch with their instructor on the mountain. If your child is going to ski and ride school with other family members or friends this is a nice package to insure they’re in the same group together without having to pay for a private lesson.

Private Lesson – $615/Half Day or $805/Full Day

  • Private Lessons can go for part of or the entire day depending on what you’re looking for. Privates do not include lift tickets or lunch like the other programs but it’s the only program that dedicates the instructor’s full attention to your child’s development on the mountain. Another positive with Private Lessons is you have the option of adding 2-5 additional people to the lesson depending on if it’s a half or full day without any additional fees. This is a good option for siblings or parents that want to ski with their child during lessons while working on their own skills, rather than the entire family paying for separate lessons.

For Adults:

Breckenridge offers everything from group lessons to terrain park specific workshops, here are a few exciting lesson opportunities you may not know about:

Women & Wine Lesson- $70/Adult

  • A half day lesson for women only (starting at 1:15pm every Wednesday) followed by a complimentary glass of wine for après.

Ski Girls Rock- $310/Day or $894/Three Days

  • Created by decorated World Alpine Ski Champion Lindsey Vonn, Ski Girls Rock lessons consist of no more than four students per group and will be led by dedicated female instructors who will focus not only on improving skiing skills, but empowering girls through the sport.

Adult First Time Snowboard Lesson-$162/Day or $297/Three Day

  • It takes the average person 3 days to learn the basics of snowboarding. With our Learn to Snowboard lessons, you will get specific first timer instruction, lift tickets, and rentals if you select them in your package.

    It isn’t every day that you can find vacation packages like this. I think it is important to have fun like this. I want to eventually go on a private sports vacation. I have heard that there are packages for that out there.
