About the Children's Ski & Snowboard programs
Learnign to snowboard while its snowing out

Our kids programs teach the foundations of skiing and snowboarding in a safe, fun-filled environment. Certified instructors focus on building good technique in a positive learning environment so that your kids will learn to love the snow and the mountains. One lesson can be all it takes to set your child on the path to a lifetime love of skiing and riding. Concerned about whether your child will enjoy ski school or not? Here are some tips to ease the transition to this sport: and create excitement about their lessons:

  • Talk up skiing and snowboarding to get your child curious and excited.
  • Express abundant excitement about your trip to the mountains.
  • Have them drink lots of water. Hydration is important not only the day of, but the days prior as well.
  • Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep, is well-fed, and prepared to wake up early and depart for the mountain.
  • Lunch is included with the full day program and other snacks will be provided as well. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated upon request. Please make a note of any restrictions or food allergies when purchasing.
  • Parents are required to remain on premises during the lesson in case of an emergency.
  • If your child has special needs or requires special accommodations please notify our team ahead of time
  • Lessons will run from 10am to 3:30pm
Arriving for your lesson

Step 1: Parking – All lessons will meet at Homewood’s North Base (located at 5145 West Lake Blvd.). Homewood offers convenient parking right at the base of the North Lodge. Note that parking reservations are required and can be made online before your visit.

Step 2: Pick Up Your Lift Ticket – After you’ve parked head over to our North Lodge. Pick up your lift ticket (which will also be preloaded with your rental information) at one of the self-serving kiosks or ticket windows.

Step 3: Pick Up Your Rentals – Follow the signs to the rentals entrance, located on the east side of the North Lodge building. Provide your lift ticket to rental staff to redeem your rental product.

Step 4: Check-in for your lesson – After checking in and picking up your rentals all lesson participants should check in with Ski School at the Ski & Snowboard School building (Little Red School House) behind the North Lodge at least 30 minutes prior to the lesson start time (we recommend at least 1 hour prior on weekends/holidays).

On busy days we may have an additional location to check-in which is located near the ski school area in front of the rental shop.

In order for your child to be ready to learn how to ski or snowboard, please be sure they have warm, waterproof pants and a jacket, mittens or gloves, one pair of warm socks, and either sunglasses or goggles.
