Lesson Information
(new lessons times for 2017/18)

Above all else, instruction should be fun. The Ski and Snowboard instructors are trained and certified by the Canadian Ski Instructors (CSIA) and Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors (CASI). We will provide a safe learning environment while offering our students the opportunity to improve sport specific skills through a taylored progression. Please remember to factor in enough time to get through registration and rentals when considering lessons. This process usually takes around 30-45 minutes.

Lesson Levels

Lessons are by age and ability. Select the age of lesson you require and then the ability you feel suits your current stage of development.

Discover Lessons - First time on skis or a snowboard or lacks turning or speed control / Level 1 - Once or twice and venturing onto green runs with limited turning and speed control / Level 2 - confident on green runs and venturing onto blue using turning / Level 3 - confident on Blue runs and venturing onto Black with controlled turns and speed.

Snowboard Group lessons begin at age 8. Younger students require more specific attention and we recommend a private lesson. Please be aware that group lessons can have up to 10 people in them and although we do our best to meet the needs of everyone in the group, there can be a range of abilties develop within the lesson as it progresses. 

ADVANCED BOOKING IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Please phone (403) 893-3961 to book now.
