Private Lessons

Create your perfect day with a private lesson.

Sugar Bowl’s private lessons provide great value and the best opportunity for progression success. They are also an ideal way for a family to learn together as a group. Our instructors are certified by the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) and have the highest level of teaching expertise.

Private lessons are for everyone. Beginners benefit from the individualized attention. Intermediate skiers who feel like they’re stuck on a plateau can get to the next level. Expert riders can follow their coach to the best spots on the mountain that only locals know about. And everyone in the lesson can avoid lift crowds by using the express line to get up the mountain faster.

To ensure availability of instructors, reservations are required and must be booked at least two days in advance of your arrival. Lessons will sell-out most weekends and holidays. Most private lessons can be booked online, but please call us at (530) 426-9000, option 3, to book over the phone in these scenarios:
  • To book a private lesson for a child younger than 4 years old; we will need to discuss the child's readiness for the experience
  • To book a 1-hour private lesson at a time other than 9:00 am
  • To inquire about lesson availability after the two-day advance purchase deadline has passed
  • To request a specific instructor or if you have any other special requests
Private lesson rates do not include lift tickets or rentals.
