PRIVATE LESSONS

A Different Kind Of Year

We all know that the 2020/2021 season looks different this year than in others, and this includes snow school. Due to the restrictions set out by the Province of Ontario, we will be offering private lessons on an individual basis only this season.

Please note Private lessons can be reserved only after you have booked your reservation (and rentals if need be) from winterpass.ca

Lessons

Lessons are available multiple times throughout the day. Limited lessons are available – do your best to book your visit/lesson as far in advance as possible.

Once you’ve done so please call (905) 878-5011 ext 1292 to book your lesson.

Although we will do our best to accommodate the best we can, those requiring private lessons this winter will need to fall under one of the below 3 categories; please read the below criteria carefully and have this information ready before booking:

2020/2021 PRIVATE LESSONS FAQ

How many people can be in a private and semi-private lesson?

Private lessons are meant for 1:1 instruction. Semi-private lessons can offer a similar experience IF the participants are of similar age and ability level. Semi-private lessons will NOT exceed 3 participants as the ratio of instructor time per student becomes too small for adequate learning outcomes.

NOTE: Children under the age of six, especially beginners, cannot be registered into a semi-private lesson – especially into a lesson with 3-4 participants.

Where can lesson participants meet their instructors?

All lessons meet at the Base of the Updraft Chairlift.

Can participants have the same instructor if they book multiple private lessons?

You can request the same instructor, but we cannot guarantee instructor-participant pairings.

Lesson Cancellation Policy

Please note that an administrative fee of $25.00 will be applied to any lesson cancellation within 24 hours of the lesson’s start time.
