Private Snowboard Lesson on a powder day

Private Lessons

At Gunstock Mountain Resort, our private lessons are focused completely on you and your needs. Our instructors will help you with whatever your learning goal is, whether it's starting out strong as a beginner, pushing past a learning plateau, or fine tuning your skills in racing, freestyle, moguls, and glades.

One on one or with a group of up to five people, private lessons are the best way to learn at your own pace

If you are new to skiing, whether you are a kid or an adult, our private instructors cater to your learning style and goals. 

Do you have a goal that you want to achieve? Drop into the glades. Perfect your turns. Master the moguls

A private lesson is a great way to achieve your personal goals with the full attention of an instructor. Our private instructors have the highest level of certification and have many years of experience, so you're in good hands. This is also an opportunity to form a great relationship with an instructor; and you can always request an instructor that you’ve had in the past!
