Ski Lessons

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

For those staying at Grand Timber Lodge or Gold Point, we recommend the Beaver Run School for convenience. 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 to 6 and 7 to 14) as well as skill level. It is important for parents to have a general idea of their child’s skill set so they can be placed in the correct class. If you’re unsure of your child’s skill level, the instructors will perform a series of tests to determine the correct class for your child.

There are two different types of lessons offered for children: Group Lessons or Private Lessons.
