Lessons & Rentals


Ready to learn to ski or snowboard? Sipapu is a fantastic place to learn with our large magic carpet beginner area, and plenty of room on the mountain to grow your skills. This year, due to COVID-19 regulations, Sipapu is offering individual private lessons at this time. We plan to offer group lessons beginning in late December. 


Know Before You Go

  • Students and instructors will receive symptom and exposure questionnaires upon their arrival to the ski area for ski school.
  • Registering at least 48 hours in advance is highly recommended. Lesson availability is limited
  • You must wear a face covering for the duration of your lesson. 
  • Please obtain your rental equipment well in advance of your lesson time. Please plan on an extra 30 minutes to 1 hour to get fitted and to the meeting place on time 
  • Please meet at the bell tower in the base area near the magic carpet for your lesson to begin. 
  • Please arrive at the base area 15-20 minutes before your lesson to check in.
