Mammoth Mountain Ski & Snowboarding Lessons

If you’ve been dreaming of learning how to ski or snowboard for your entire life, there’s no better place to give it a go than Mammoth Mountain in California. There are numerous benefits to taking lessons at Mammoth including convenient access to beginner chairlifts and a friendly and world-class instructor staff.

Mammoth has highly skilled and some of the nation’s best instructors ready to teach young children the essentials and even “old dogs” new tricks. Ski and snowboarding lessons are available privately or as a group, and further divided by age range and lesson type. Lesson options include

  1. Lessons only
  2. Lessons plus lift access
  3. Lessons plus rentals
  4. All-inclusive lessons that include lift and rentals

Mammoth has excellent beginner-level terrain for both skiing and snowboarding alike, and convenient access from either Canyon, Eagle or the Main Lodge. Mountain-wide there are specially designated chairlifts for beginners. A guest can even purchase discounted beginner lift tickets via the Mammoth website that only provide access to the beginner lifts—chairs 7, 11, 15, and 17. These lifts limit access to the beginner areas only for added safety and peace of mind.

A large beginner area serviced by Chairs 7 and 17 is directly across the street from your St Anton accommodations. This proximity and easy access can be a huge plus for families juggling the challenges of lessons, small children, lunch breaks and photo opportunities!

Advanced lessons with an instructor who can double as your personal mountain guide are also available and a great way to take advantage of Mammoth’s expansive terrain while skipping the lift lines. And for the little ones Mammoth offers Lesson + Child Care packages that includes lunch, rest time and tons of fun on and off the snow.
