Private Ski Lesson
Where to Park & When/Where To Meet

At Sugar Bowl we offer two convenient, dedicated lessons centers, one from our Village Base Area and another from the Judah Base Area. Either park at the Gondola portal off Donner Pass Road, ride the Gondola across, then head to Village Rentals (Adult Lessons) or Village Kids (Children Lessons). Guests coming to the Judah side head to Judah Kids (Child Lessons), or head to Judah Rentals (Adult Lessons). New this season Judah Kids offers exclusive up-front parking for those who book children lessons online in advance.

If getting rentals, plan to arrive at the rental shop at least 1 hour prior to your lesson time (1 1/2 hours on weekends/holidays). Please arrive to the meeting area at least 15 minutes prior to your lesson. Private lesson meeting areas are behind the Mt. Judah Lodge or at the base of Mt. Disney by the Schull House.
