Private Lessons

Why Take a Lesson?

The best way to improve your skills on the slopes or in the terrain park is to take a Private Lesson with one of our skilled ski or snowboard instructors. Private Lessons are available for children and adults in 2.5 and 6 hour sessions. The Brian Head Winter Sports School has helped thousands of students learn how to have fun on the snow. Private lessons are available for all ages – although, we recommend that children ages 4 and under take a one-on-one lesson with our instructors
Due to the popularity of our Winter Sports School, reservations are highly recommended, and are required during Peak Pricing Periods. All Winter Sports School prices listed below are with a minimum of 5 days advance reservations. Add 10% with less than 5 days advance reservations, and 20% with less than 24 hours or no advance reservations. Prices do not include applicable sales tax. We are not able to accommodate late arrivals.

Special Needs Lesson Programs

Brian Head Resort continues to improve and expand the quality and variety of learning options for all of its guests.   Many of the Resort’s Winter Sports School Instructors go through specialized training over and above the standard training and certifications offered by PSIA and AASI.

The Resort’s specially trained Instructors can teach students with cognitive disabilities and many other special needs in a private lesson.  Students that require special equipment (mono or bi-ski, 3 or 4 track, etc.) will need to provide their own equipment.  Our Instructors may not be trained in all special equipment, so please call to discuss your individual needs.

Advance reservations for these specialized private lesson programs are highly recommended.  For additional information or to make your reservation email us at or call (435) 677-2035.
