“We enjoy nothing more than helping new skiers and snowboarders discover a lifelong love for snow sports,” said El Furtney, managing director of Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Ski & Snowboard Schools. “With lessons and packages developed specifically for beginners, our experienced professional instructors can take our guests from their first day on the slopes to confidence on easy blue terrain in just a few sessions.”
For adults and teens, the Learn to Ski/Ride lesson package offers beginners the ability to learn the basics in a safe, comfortable environment from expert instructors at the Alpine Meadows Ski and Snowboard School. The 2.25-hour lesson focuses on teaching the crucial skills of turning, stopping and riding lifts. The package includes the lesson, rental equipment, and a restricted beginner lift ticket for the day, all for just $119 if purchased in advance, and $129 if purchased that day. If morning lesson participants want to continue to develop their newly acquired skills, they can opt for the Learn to Ski/Ride Upgrade, which gets them the afternoon group lesson session for just $69.
Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows will continue to offer discounts to returning group lesson customers. Adults can take advantage of our Take Two Get One program, and after completing two group lessons the third one is on us. However, the afternoon Learn to Ski/Ride upgrade does not count as an additional lesson towards promotion. For children who take five group lessons, the sixth one is free.
Squaw’s instructors are some of the best in the business, and they back that up with their beginner guarantee. Participate in three full-day group lessons and Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows guarantees you’ll be skiing or riding on the easiest intermediate runs on their mountains. If not, instructors will keep working with you until they get you there, at no additional cost.
