Private Lessons

A private lesson is about you - what you want to learn, who you want to learn with, what terrain you want to cover and at what pace you want to progress. Reservations are highly recommended.  Private lessons allow you to bring up to six family members and friends per instructor.  Lessons are offered for skiing, snowboarding, telemark skiing and snowbiking.  Reservations are required for all private lessons.

Telluride Development Squad

The Telluride Development Squad is an 8-session youth ski and Snowboard program offered through the Telluride Ski and Snowboard School. TDS's goal is to foster and promote skiing and snowboarding to children in a fun and safe learning environment. The program includes instruction and tactics for skiing and riding all-mountain terrain, bumps, and terrain parks. Groups are formed based on ability level and appropriate terrain is chosen based on level. 

"This is a tremendous opportunity for kids in the region to develop a lifelong love of skiing and riding in a program that promotes team building, mountain safety and learning in a non-competitive environment."
