Half-Day Group Lessons

Welcome to Arapahoe Basin Snowsports School! 

Start your or your family’s alpine skiing or snowboarding journey with an all-inclusive group lesson package on Arapahoe Basin's Molly Hogan Learning Hill. Focusing on the foundational basics via professional, personal instruction is a great way to set yourself or your kids up for success and maximum fun on the mountain.

A-Basin group lessons are for ages 3 and up and are perfect for anyone who has never been on skis or a snowboard, or has been out once or twice and wants more practice to be comfortable beyond the learning hill. This is a great option for a beginner or someone who is just getting started on mountain greens. 

Why learn at Arapahoe Basin? Molly Hogan is easy to access from the free parking lots; our atmosphere is always laid-back and welcoming; and the deck of the 6th Alley Bar & Grill is the perfect place to celebrate your success with a delicious lunch. If you learn to ski or ride here, you can ski or ride anywhere!

GROUP LESSON PRICE: $225 (am) or $199 (pm) for a 3-hour lesson that includes lift ticket and equipment (skis/board, boots, helmet)

START TIMES: 9 AM & 1 PM. Group lessons are 3 hours. 

SNOWSPORTS DATES: Daily, Nov. 18, 2023 - April 28, 2024 (conditions dependent)
