Ski & Snowboard Lessons

With 120 instructors, the largest in the region, our lessons at Sundown Mountain Resort are 50% longer than most resorts. Our ski instructors are here to ensure that you have a great time on the slopes while learning safely. With their expertise and experience, you can trust that you’ll be in good hands as you navigate the mountain.

A valid lift ticket or season pass is required for every lesson. We recommend guests arrive at the mountain at least 2 hours before lesson time if purchasing rentals.

Join us and experience the thrill of skiing with confidence at Sundown Mountain Resort!

KIDS PARK LESSONS: Kids Park Lessons will meet at the top of the Beginner Area under the Group Lesson Sign, outside the Mountain Center until further notice.
Thanks, Kids Park Management
