We look forward to welcoming you back for group and private lessons, where we will provide a safe and fun experience that will help take your skills to the next level. We will limit class sizes to encourage physical distancing.


What ski and ride school offerings will you provide this year at your resorts?
We are pleased to be resuming more ski and ride school programs this season, including those for younger children. Specifics can be found on our ski and ride school page.


Will face coverings be required in ski and ride school this season?
No. Face coverings are not required to ski and ride, or in gondolas or indoor spaces at this time, unless required by local public health or CDC designation. This includes restaurants, lodging properties, restrooms, retail and rental locations, and base areas. However, face coverings are still required on buses and shuttles.


What is the cancellation and refund policy for Ski & Ride School lessons?
Changes or cancellations can be made in advance of your lesson date by contacting the Ski & Ride School conducting your lesson. Any Ski & Ride School product that is cancelled prior to 24 hours of the lesson start time will be issued a full refund. Any Ski & Ride School product that is cancelled within 24 hours of the lesson start time will be charged a cancellation fee.

For more information on refunds and cancellations, please refer to the Ski & Ride School Terms of Sale. 

Do I need a vaccine to ski and ride this season?
No. Vaccinations are not required to ski or ride during the 2021/22 season. Additionally, thanks to continued improvement in COVID-19 cases, proof of vaccination is no longer required for guests to dine at our indoor cafeteria-style restaurants, effective Saturday, Mar. 12, 2022.


Will you change this policy if the situation with COVID-19 increases?
All of our COVID-19 safety protocols are subject to change, however, we believe guests can assume this will be our policy for the remainder of the 2021-22 season.


Are you requiring your staff to be vaccinated?
Yes. Vail Resorts currently requires all employees to be vaccinated for COVID-19.


Will Vail Resorts require proof of vaccination to enter or dine at restaurants?
No. As of March 12, we do not require proof of vaccination for guests to access any area of the resort, including dining and ski and ride school.

After a fantastic season, we are now closed. Please come back later for more information on lessons for the 22/23 season!
