Are you a newcomer to the slopes? Maybe an intermediate hoping to master the mountain? Or an all-terrain skier looking to perfect your technique? No matter your ability, the Whiteface Snowsports School offers private lessons for all ages to help you reach your skiing and riding goals. Our instructors are industry experts, passionate about what they do, and committed to developing your skills, building your confidence and challenging you with new terrain, all while having fun and at a comfortable pace. Our professional staff will accommodate up to five people per lesson for those who want to improve with friends or family.
