Children’s Lessons

Our kid’s programs teach the foundations of skiing and snowboarding in a safe, fun-filled environment. Group and private children’s lessons are available daily for children ages 4 through 12 of any ability level.

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.

Please note: Children’s lessons (ages 4-12) are held at Homewood’s South Lodge (click for map). Children should be dropped off for lessons first, allowing enough time for adults to check-in prior to their lesson.

We recommend booking your lesson in advance online to secure your spot before your next visit.
