Guaranteed Learn to Ski or Snowboard Lessons

Guaranteed Learn to Ski or Snowboard Lessons

“Badger Pass Ski School has been teaching beginners for 77 years. The terrain is easy and non-intimidating which is very important when you are learning. There is no better place to learn to ski or snowboard than at Badger Pass, WE GUARANTEE IT.”

- Colin Baldock, Badger Pass General Manager, and former ski school director at Sierra Summit (now China Peak) and Mt Buffalo (Australia).

We are so confident that we can teach you how to ski or snowboard at Badger Pass on your first day, we guarantee it. With the Guaranteed Learn-to-Ski Package, we'll have you riding the Bruin chairlift and skiing or snowboarding down our beginner run on your first day. We know everyone learns at a different pace. That’s OK. If you need more than one day to accomplish this we will give you a voucher to come back free of charge and try again until you can.

Package includes:

  • Equipment rental
  • Beginner lift ticket †
  • A morning and afternoon group lesson

Guaranteed Learn to Ski/Snowboard packages are offered Daily at 10am.  Must be aged 7 or older. We schedule group lessons on a first-come first-served basis each morning, so we recommend that you arrive around 8:30am. This is a popular class, and you will want to leave yourself plenty of time to rent any ski or snowboarding equipment that you may need.

† Beginner lift ticket includes access to the Turtle Handle Tow and the Bruin Chair Lift.

Must be completed same day.
