Ski & Snowboard Lessons at A-Basin

Welcome to our snowsports school!

Lessons must be booked online in advance. 

Why learn to ski or snowboard at A-Basin? We have a few reasons that we love. Small class sizes, a gorgeous setting, free parking with easy access, and a laid-back atmosphere welcoming you to the joy of sliding on snow. We are a ski area close to Denver and are home to the longest winter season in Colorado. If you learn to ski or ride here, you can ski or ride anywhere. Welcome to The Legend!

Rental equipment is not included (must be reserved online separately). Please wear a face covering indoors.

Available Lesson Types

Start your snowsports journey on our Molly Hogan lift or explore the mountain with a guide while improving your skills on the steeps, bumps, or in the trees. 

At Arapahoe Basin, we have options to suit all skill levels and (almost) all ages. Ski and snowboard class lessons are open to ages 7 and up, and private lessons are open to ages 3 and up. Kids Club Arapahoe returns this season for skiers 7-11 looking to take their experience to the next level.
