Lessons

PLEASE NOTE: Lessons are only available to be purchased at the mountain (not online). Please check at the SnowSports desk, which is in The Hub.

General information

  • Please arrive at least one hour before the 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. lesson times–the earlier the better due to indoor COVID-19 restrictions.
  • Also, due to restrictions, no lessons will be offered for children ages 6 or younger this season.

Group lessons: All ability levels

Bluewood offers several group lesson options–from a basic single-day lift ticket and lesson to three-day packages that include lift tickets, lessons and equipment rentals. Select an age-group tab to explore the options. Beginner packages top the list under each tab, followed by options for people with intermediate to advanced abilities.

Ages 6 & under

Families and kids of all ages are welcome to come up and ski/ride. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, no lessons will be offered during the 2020-21 season for children ages 6 and younger. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
