Ski & Board Private Lessons for Children – First Tracks

Ski Lessons for 3-4 Year Olds and Snowboard Lessons for 3-6 Year Olds in a Private Lesson Format

Is your child still too young for Kid’s Camp Group Lessons? Put them in a private lesson! First Tracks Private Lessons are available for children 3-4 years old (Ski Only) in 2.5 hour sessions. Snowboard lessons are offered for children ages 3-6. The Brian Head Winter Sports School has helped thousands of students learn how to have fun on the snow. Children must be willing, ready, and potty trained at Check-In.

Due to the popularity of our Winter Sports School, reservations are highly recommended, and are required during Peak Pricing Periods.
