Learning a new sport can be intimidating, but don’t worry; our friendly instructors will show you everything you need to know. Guests at Kirkwood learn to ski and snowboard on the best learning terrain in the entire region.

Our child specific programs center on safety, fun and learning. We create a memorable experience for all our students through exploration, encouragement and fun! We have a variety of children's programs to fit the needs of all our young learners.
What to expect
Ready to move beyond the magic carpet to the green runs and beyond? Our intermediate lessons build on the skills already developed allowing the students to explore more of the amazing terrain found here at Kirkwood. These lessons still concentrate on safety, fun and learning while developing the skills to tackle more challenging areas of the mountain.
These three hour clinics led by our specially trained All Star coaches are designed for ripping skiers and snowboarders ages 6 - 15. Clinics focus on the variety of skills needed to handle variable snow conditions and different terrain. Children must be comfortable riding Chairs 11 and 6 or are at least of a level six skiing/snowboarding ability. Lessons meet at the Expedition: Kirkwood meeting area near the village so students have instant access to the terrain they need.
The best athletes in the world have personal coaches, why shouldn't you? There is no faster way to progress than to spend time one on one with your own instructor. Coming with friends or family? Multi-Person lessons are available - groups must be 2-5 people of similar age & ability.
What to Expect
