Kid Lessons

Our children’s ski school is for kids ages 3-12. We believe that the best way for young skiers and snowboarders to learn is by having fun, so our professional instructors are committed to not only safety and skill development, we’re also into laughter, games and instilling your children with a passion for winter sports.

If your child has never been skiing or snowboarding before, he or she can get up to three FREE lessons.

As New Mexico’s Family-Friendly, Family Fun resort, we offer unique family lessons that will allow you and your children to learn how to ski or snowboard together. Find out more about family lessons.

Lesson Times

Private lessons are available throughout the day and last one to two hours.

Half-day group lessons begin at 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. and last two hours.

Full-day lessons begin at 10 a.m. with a one-hour lunch break at noon. No supervision is provided from 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. Parents, use this break to let your kids show you what they’ve learned! Classes resume from 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m.

The ski school desk is located in the first level of the main lodge. Please give yourself at least one hour prior to the lesson to purchase your child’s lift ticket and pick up his or her rentals. We do not accept advance reservations at this time.
