Group lessons are offered both day and night at 10:00am, 11:15am, 2:00pm, 6:15pm, and 7:30pm. Private lessons are offered throughout the day.
The French Swiss Ski College believes that learning is more effective in small groups, never more than 10, and usually less. For Burton LTR—anyone renting Burton LTR snowboard equipment from Appalachian Ski Mtn. can purchase a group lesson with a low 4:1 student to instructor ratio.
Private lessons provide the most accelerated path to improvement. If you want to make a leap ahead in your proficiency, a private lesson is the fastest way to improve your skills so that you can better enjoy your time on the slopes.
For group lessons—we do not take reservations. It is recommended that you sign up at least 1 hour prior to the lesson start times. For private lessons—it is recommended but not required that you call 24 hours in advance so that the proper instructor and time can be arranged. Private lessons are very popular, so please make a reservation in advance, especially if you are requesting a specific instructor.

We recommend it. Helmets are provided for all SKIWee and Cruiser Camp participants. The 2009/10 NSAA National Demographic Study revealed that nationwide, 76% of children age 14 and under used helmets last winter. Given that a ski lesson is designed to expand your child’s skill level, helmets are a good idea. Children taking group or private lessons may rent a helmet for as little as $3 a day.
