Children's Group Lessons

with Angel Fire's Ski and Snowboard School

Is your little one ready to ski or snowboard? Angel Fire’s Ski and Snowboard School offers group lessons for kids ages 4 to 12 so the entire family can be hitting the slopes together in no time.

Get better acquainted with Angel Fire’s Ski and Snowboard School with these helpful tips and tricks:

The Best in the Southwest

When you enroll your child in Angel Fire’s Ski and Snowboard School, you can rest easy knowing that they will receive high quality skill-based and age-based training from experienced and certified instructors. Plus, with low student to instructor ratios, you can guarantee your child will have all the attention they need to get them going down the mountain in no time. 

Why Angel Fire Ski and Snowboard School?

  • Small Class Sizes We have always had small class size. Our average class size is usually less than 4:1 student to instructor ratios. During the 2020-2021 season we will continue to have small class ratios in compliance with current New Mexico Department of Health guidelines. This season, 3 year old lessons will be conducted on a 1:1 private 1 hour lesson only.
    *Note:For the 2020-2021 season, Angel Fire’s Ski and Snowboard School lessons are by reservation only. These must be made no less than 72 hours from arrival and will sell out quickly! No walk-up reservations will be taken during this time.
  • Quality Over Quantity We never oversell the program beyond its ability to provide a quality learning experience. This is especially true of holidays when we can sell out weeks in advance.
  • One Stop Service We have a rental shop and retail shop inside the Children’s Ski and Snowboard Center so everything you need is under one roof.
  • More Time on the Snow We ask that children arrive in time for their class so classes may begin as soon as possible. Most children ages 7 and older will get over 4.5 hours of time on the snow. You can rest assured that your children won’t be treated like they’re at daycare. We believe the best learning is by doing, so we limit our time inside.
  • Experience and Certification We have PSIA-AASI level 1-3 certified instructors – many with Children’s Specialist 1 and 2 credentials – that work with your children every day at Angel Fire’s Ski and Snowboard School. All of Angel Fire’s ski and snowboard staff are specially trained to teach children.
  • Qualified and Abundant Indoor Staffing We have an abundant indoor staff, many of which have gone to school as children’s specialists. We maintain a clean, functional, secure facility.
  • Outstanding Food Our chef provides homemade, fresh, and nutritious meals every day.  Vegetarian options are always available. If your child has specific dietary requirements or is a picky eater, we encourage you to pack snacks and lunch for your child.
  • More Bang For Your Buck Equipment rentals, helmets, and lift tickets are always included in Angel Fire’s Ski & Snowboard School price.
  • Security and Peace of Mind  Every child is equipped with Flaik GPS technology, which means we know in real time where your child is on the mountain. At the end of the day, you can share your child’s day by going online to view their travels.
  • Results We have been developing this program for decades and are experts at specific age development,their respective competencies, and teaching at the appropriate pace and with the correct practice to create lifelong skiers and riders. We coach for breakthroughs and challenge new terrain when it is appropriate, but we never push children out of their comfort zones for the sake of more difficult terrain goals. We believe in pleasure and play, and that the best skier on the mountain is the one having the most fun!
  • Kids Only Parents are not allowed at Angel Fire’s Ski and Snowboard School children’s lessons, which means kids are pushed to learn and play independently at a pace that is ideal for them.

IMPORTANT: Notes for the 2020-2021 Season

  • Children’s group lessons are by reservation only. These must be made no less than 72 hours from arrival and will sell out quickly! No walk-up reservations will be taken during this time.
