How Snow School Builds Skills
Whistler attracts top level athletes from around the world looking to advance their skills in Whistler Blackcomb's varied terrain. Whistler Blackcomb Snow School has the benefit of hiring from such a talent rich pool ensuring that all of their instructors come with wealth of experience. This transitions over to lessons as students greatly benefit by learning from instructors who know their craft inside and out.
Snow School: Lessons For All Levels
Whether you slide down the mountain on one board or two, you'll be impressed with the quality of Whistler Blackcomb Snow School's skiing and boarding lessons.
Private lessons are available for kids, teens and adults. During a private lesson instructors are able to cater the lesson exclusively to you. Instructors are able to match your skill with your ideal terrain and allow you to collaborate on your lesson plan together.
Private Telemark lessons are available for groups up to five people with similar abilities.
Just because you’re an adult doesn't mean you can't learn to ski or improve your skills. Adult lessons are available in private lessons, Super Groups (3 people) and group lessons (3+). At certain times of the year Whistler Blackcomb even offers multi-day camps allowing you to learn with others and make new friends along the way.
Kids & Youth Lessons
Whistler Kids caters to kids as young as 3 and as old as 12. For kids just starting skiing or boarding check out Blackcomb Snow School, equipped with its own training area and magic carpet ride. This area allows kids to develop at their own pace in the safety of a fenced off beginner run.
The instructors at Whistler Kids love to work with young children and have chosen to make kids lessons their priority. There are three different kids programs including age groups three and four year olds, five and six year olds and seven to 12 year olds.
Kids between the ages of 13 & 18 years old can take part in the Ride Tribe, Park Freeride and Momentum Mogul clinics.
