Don’t Skip Ski School (& Book Early)

Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned rider, there’s always room for improvement. That’s why you’ll want to book at least one snowboard lesson at the ski school in Park City.

You can choose from child, teen, and adult lessons, as well as the option for group or private lessons. Be sure to book early, as slots fill up fast — especially during the Christmas holidays and spring break weeks!
