Personalize your mountain experience with a private lesson. These lessons are designed to offer individually tailored coaching for all ability levels. You will gain maximum benefit as our instructors develop your lesson to meet your specific needs and goals

Private lessons offer instruction for every skier and rider, from freestyle athletes to first-timers. For ages 4 and older, these lessons are the best way to personalize your mountain experience.

Skiing, Snowboarding and Telemark Skiing

Whether you’ve had one or one hundred days on the snow, any skier, rider or telemark skier can schedule a session to fine-tune their turns.


These are the sessions to get skiers and riders throwing their best tricks. From sliding your first rail to navigating the entire park like a pro, our Snow Sports instructors will take you there.

Glades and Natural Woods Areas

There’s more than just groomers at Pico Mountain – that’s right, the woods are good, too, and with a glades or natural woods session, you’ll discover the best spots and learn to ski or ride them like a local.

Family Private Lesson

Designed around the needs of the child, Family Privates give mom or dad insight on how to best ski or ride with their child. Teaching techniques, what to look for, and where to go are featured. A family that slides together stays together! Just mention you’re looking for a Family Private and we’ll set you up with an instructor who specializes in building the family bond. You ski and the kids ride? Vice versa? Not a problem. Just let us know if you would prefer a ski instructor or a snowboard instructor for the kids and our flexible staff will take it from there.
