How To Choose The Right Ski Lessons For Your Family

Ski Lessons

As a first-time skier or snowboarder, the experience can be daunting. Not only is there an overwhelming amount of equipment to choose from, but also different types of lessons to sign up for. Safety is always the number one priority when participating in these winter sports, so it is important to make sure you and your family are well prepared before hitting the slopes.

There are a few things to take into consideration when choosing ski or snowboard lessons for your family.

What You’ll Need:

  • Ski or snowboard equipment
  • A valid lift ticket
  • Clothing and accessories: ski pants, jacket, gloves, hat, goggles, sunscreen, etc.

At Brian Head Resort, we make it easy for you and your family by offering private, semi-private, and group ski and snowboard lessons. But which one is right for you? Let’s break it down:

Private Lessons

Private lessons are great for those who want undivided attention from their instructor. This type of lesson is recommended for beginners or those working on perfecting their technique. With a private lesson, you can learn at your own pace without having to keep up with anyone else. Having dedicated time with an instructor helps you gain confidence on the slopes quickly so that you can make the most of your vacation.

Just remember that lessons are usually more challenging in the beginning because you are starting from scratch and learning all the basic skills. As you become more comfortable with the sport, lessons will become easier and more fun.

Semi-Private Lessons

Semi-private lessons are perfect for those who want the personalized attention of a private lesson but at a lower price. With a semi-private lesson, you’ll share your instructor with up to 3 other people. This is a great option for families or groups of friends who want to learn together. The benefit here is that you’ll still get quality time with the instructor while being able to ski or ride with your loved ones.

Just remember that since you’ll be with other people, the lesson may move at a slower pace for those who are picking up the sport quickly.

Group Lessons

Group lessons are our most popular type of lesson and are perfect for beginners or those wanting to brush up on their skills. You’ll learn alongside other skiers or snowboarders at a similar skill level in a fun and supportive environment. One of the great things about group lessons is that you’ll make new friends who share your love for the sport. Skiing and snowboarding are more fun when done with friends!

Just remember that since you’ll be with other people, the lesson may move at a slower pace for those who are picking up the sport quickly.

In Closing

Choosing the right type of lesson is important, but it’s also important to choose the right instructor. All of our instructors are certified professionals who are passionate about skiing and snowboarding. They will work with you to help you reach your goals, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced skier or snowboarder.
