Youth Lessons - Thanks for a great 2020-21 season. We will see you next year when the snow flies!

Youth Daily Lesson Information

At the Meadows Learning Center, our goal is to create passionate, lifelong skiers and snowboarders.

All lessons must be purchased online by 12 PM the day before your visit. Youth full-day ski or snowboard lessons include four hours of instruction from 9:30-11:30 AM and then 1-3 PM. Youth half-day ski or snowboard lessons include two hours of instruction from 9:30-11:30 AM or 1-3 PM. For the 2020-21 season, these lessons are available for children ages 7-14 of all ability levels from First Time through Black. (Adult lessons are also an option for students age 13 & up).

This season, our youth lessons will meet on the snow at the Children’s Corral, located on the mountain side of the new Sahale Lodge. Morning check-in begins at 9:00 AM, afternoon check-in begins at 12:30.

Rentals for lessons can be picked up at our new Rental Center, located on the main floor of the Sahale Lodge. Rentals will need to be picked up prior to checking in at the Children’s Corral for lessons.

We recommend arriving at the mountain at least 90 minutes prior to your lesson start time. Arriving as early as 8 AM is recommended during weekends or the holiday season. Upon arrival, please proceed to the main floor of the Sahale Lodge, the new home to both our Learning Center and Rental Center. A member of the Learning Center or the Guest Services Team will be able to guide you through the check-in process.  

Out of an abundance of caution there will be no supervised lunch at this time for full-day youth lessons. Instructors will return all students to the Children’s Corral and release them to their parents/guardians for lunch. Groups will reform back in the Children’s Corral after the lunch break starting at 12:30 PM.
