Whether you are new to skiing and snowboarding or are a seasoned veteran looking to improve on advanced techniques, private lessons from the Vail Ski & Snowboard School instructors will take your abilities to the next level. You and up to five of your friends and family members can have personalized private snowboard and ski lessons together, tailored to your individual skill levels and styles with one of our world-renowned pros whether you get equipment at the Children's Ski & Snowboard Centers Rental Shops, Vail Sports or you brought your own.

You can structure your private lesson however you choose, whether it's a fun-for-the-whole-family affair, or a couple's escape to Vail's remote reaches. No matter what you're after, we've got just the right instructor to get you wherever you want to go.

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 ends at 9:00am. Classes will leave Ski & Snowboard School meeting locations promptly at 9:15am. Please arrive early to maximize your child's experience and ensure lesson accommodation.




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.

Learn.Turn.Ride

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.
