Ultimate Four

A premium small group ski lesson program for children ages 3–15 years with only 4 children per instructor (Ultimate 4 Snowboard lessons also offered for ages five and six). Your kids will be able to explore the mountain while fine tuning their skills with one of our friendly professional instructors in our Vail ski school.  Registration begins at 8am and your child must be registered and ticketed by 9am. Classes will leave from Golden Peak or Lionshead at 9:15am.

Ski Girls Rock

Ski Girls Rock, a new premium lesson product inspired and designed by Olympic gold medalist and World Alpine Ski Champion Lindsey Vonn, is exclusively for girls ages 7 to Teen at Vail Mountain. The inspiration comes from Lindsey’s own experience as a young skier and interactions with female role models who inspired her to the greatness she’s achieved today both on and off the slopes.


Always wanted to try snowboarding, but worried that all the rumors about the first day falls, aches and pains are true? Well put those worries aside, because now is the perfect time to strap on a board and learn how to ride with top-notch snowboard instructors from the world-class Vail Ski & Snowboard School.

Our professional instructors use hands-on techniques to create a “slam-free” learning environment and guarantee that you’ll be cruising on your way past the beginner areas after just three days of lessons on the snow. If your skills have not progressed to the level necessary to begin exploring the mountain outside of the beginner chair areas by the end of the third day, we will offer you a complimentary fourth day to get you there.

This product can be used in a five-day period, which will allow you to slow down and enjoy the learning process, or pursue some of the other fun offerings here at Vail.

Ages 3 to 4

Children of all levels will have a blast learning new skills and meeting new friends. Each day consists of entertaining educational themes that make learning fun. Your child must be registered and ticketed by 9:30am. Registration begins at 8:00am and ends at 9:00am.

Ages 5 to 12

Our programs for older kids offer engaging activities like Race Day, SKE-COLOGY, and adventures in our terrain park, making every lesson a ton of fun. Your child must be registered, fitted for equipment and ready to meet their instructor by 9am. Registration begins at 8:00am and ends at 9:00am.


With Vail's Teen Lessons, youth skiers and riders will have the opportunity to experience a whole new dimension on the mountain; they'll meet new friends, explore Vail and receive just the right amount of instruction to conquer the slopes, parks and pipes with confidence. Registration begins at 8am and your teen must be registered and ticketed by 9:00am.
