Welcome to Sierra's Snowsports School. We offer a wide range of options for all ages and all ability levels.

Learn a new sport, improve your technique, or explore new possibilities. Thanks to our world-class instructors and impressive terrain, learning to ski or ride at Sierra is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that can't be missed.

Sierra’s SMART TERRAIN® Program offers beginners an opportunity to experience the sport of skiing or snowboarding in an environment best suited for learning and improving skills. Our learning terrain, Easy Street, is 11 acres of sculpted terrain including gently banked turns and shaped features that naturally guide skiers and snowboarders into turns and stops so they are able to learn the fundamentals of skiing and riding more quickly. Two dedicated conveyor lifts make it a breeze to get up the hill, so beginners can focus on coming back down.
