  2. Select Your Lesson Program: Match the ability of you or your child to the type of program that will best suit your goal and schedule. Only coming for a day? Our drop-in Single Private Lessons OR Discover program are your best bet!
  3. Add Your Lift Pass Option: A valid lift pass is REQUIRED for any guest using the lifts and slopes.
  4. Add rentals if needed: We have rental package options that can be added to any lesson program.

How to Register for Private Lessons

Private Programs are lessons with 1 instructor for a series of lessons in a row on a set day and time. These lessons are typically offered 1:1, but additional students may be added to the lesson should you desire. Some special requests are able to be accommodated in a Private Program; the Snow School will follow up with you once you have booked to discuss additional requests.

Please note that walk-in Private Lessons are not booked at this time. Private Lessons are single lessons that do not repeat. These will typically commence booking 2 weeks before the season opens.

Private Lesson Programs can be booked 1 of 2 ways:

  • To schedule one private lesson with one or multiple individuals in the lesson: **
  • Begin by clicking Add Program and Participant(s)
  • Enter your personal details, then select option Private Programs – All Ages
  • Select your program, either Ski Package Private or Snowboard Package Private
  • Select your desired program type, Camp or 8 Week, then a start date and time
  • If you do not wish to add any additional participants to your lesson, click Proceed to Checkout

To add additional participants, of the same approximate age & ability:

  • Click Add Program and Participant(s) again
  • Repeat the same steps as above
  • Click Proceed to Checkout
  • To schedule multiple private lessons with different instructors, follow the steps above but complete separate transactions for each participant.

** Important:

  • Private lessons with multiple participants must be of the same ability
  • Additional participants can be added to a scheduled private lesson later by contacting the Glen Eden Visitor Service Team

*Please note that while we are optimistic, we aren’t exactly sure what the season will look like and what restrictions will be enforced by the province. Therefore, lesson availability is somewhat limited at this time, and we hope to open it up more once we have more information.
