What to Know Before you Go

Once you've booked a lesson

  • If you need to change or cancel your reservation please refer to our cancelation policy below.
  • Lessons are never cancelled because of weather.

On the day of your lesson

  • Morning lessons begin at 10:00am sharp on snow. Be ready to go with your ski or snowboard equipment.
  • On Peak Days we recommend aiming to arrive at the parking lot between 8:00-8:30am to allow plenty of time for traffic, parking and equipment fitting.
  • Be sure to eat and drink plenty of fluids before your lesson.
  • Check the road conditions before you leave to ensure you are prepared.
  • If renting, head to the Rental Center first to check-in and get fitted for equipment. Lessons meet on-snow right outside the Rental Center.

*Gratuities for coaches are not a requirement but an appropriate and appreciated gesture. A 10-20% gratuity based on the cost of the lesson will make your coach feel very appreciated and valued.

Teen & Adult Lesson FAQ's

If you are planning a trip on a weekend or during a holiday we advise reserving as much as a week in advance as space in our programs fills up frequently.  Reservations must be made online or by calling 206-812-7387 at least 48 hours prior to your visit and our cancellation policy allows you to book ahead with confidence.

Changes or cancelations MUST be made 2 days prior to your reservation date in order to receive a FULL REFUND. 

  1. To cancel, please email spcancelations@vailresorts.com or call 206-812-4510 ext. 1706. We recommend you err on the side of caution if you are sick.
  2. Full refunds will only be issued for cancelations received 2 days before your lesson date.
  3. If you cancel the day prior to your lesson you will be charged a fee of $25.
  4. If you cancel after 7:00am the day of your lesson or no call/no show you will be charged the full rate of the lesson reserved.
