Private Lessons At Sierra

Private Lessons

Private lessons are a great way to get started on the slopes or to elevate your skiing and riding to the next level. With one-on-one or small group instruction, a student can often progress his/her abilities more in one lesson than in an entire season without professional instruction. Sierra-at-Tahoe offers many affordable private lesson options, including:

Private Lessons for all Abilities and Ages

Sierra caters to all levels of skiers and riders by pairing up the appropriate instructor for each ability and age. Choose from 3 hours or a full day of one-on-one instruction to help improve your ability. This individualized experience provides instant feedback and personal attention helping you fine tune your technique while enjoying a day out on the mountain.

Zeal Ion Video Analysis Add-On

Seeing is believing! Add expert video analysis to any Private Lesson (3 hours or longer); limited availability, please inquire with your reservation! By combining the latest technology and PSIA certified instruction, guests are sure to see improvement quickly. Review your video analysis after the lesson with an instructor, and enjoy a discount on your next lesson when booked that day. Once you experience this new goggle technology, you’ll have to own a pair yourself, and can purchase at a discount in Sierra Mt. Sports.
