Adult Ski & Snowboard Lessons

Taking a skiing or snowboarding lesson is the best way to quickly improve your skills, boost your on-mountain confidence and make your skiing and riding more enjoyable!

Angel Fire Resort Ski & Snowboard School fills up quickly, so reservations are highly recommended for everyone. For more information or to reserve a lesson with one of our experienced instructors book online below or call (800) 633-7463. Please make sure to check to see if your lesson includes a lift ticket and rentals before booking them separately. All students must have a valid lift ticket to attend a lesson. The ticket during a lesson acts as a Snow Use Permit and does not guarantee using the lift. If you want to book a lesson within the next 48 hours, please stop by our Ski & Snowboard Sales Office located next to the Ticket Office to find out if there is anything available.

When taking AM Lessons, we strongly suggest picking up rental gear day before lesson if possible or at 8 AM on day of lesson

Rental Equipment Pick Up: 

  • Pick up equipment at the rental shop the day before your lesson between 3:30 – 5 PM.
  • Equipment may be picked up from rental shop at 8 AM day of lesson, but these tend to be extremely busy times.
