Wolf Creek Ski School is excited to announce Ski and Snowboard private lessons for all ages and levels for the 2020/21 season.  We will be offering reserved private lessons only. The lesson must be reserved by 3:00 pm the day before the lesson to assure we can accommodate the lesson.   Private lessons are limited, so early reservations are recommended. Wolf Creek is committed to start operations with a conservative approach in accordance to Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Guidance (CDPHE) during these difficult times. Please read the CDPHE guidance for Ski School so you know what is expected.

-Half and Full Day Private lessons are a good option for small family groups and folks traveling together.  A Half Day private is a three-hour lesson and a Full Day private is a five hour lesson, both can accommodate up to 5 people.

-If you have limited time here at Wolf Creek, consider learning skiing instead of snowboarding. Skiing is generally easier to learn especially if you only have one day here at the mountain.
