Lessons for 7 & Older

Ski & Snowboard Lessons for the 2023/24 season can be reserved online.

At Sunlight, we prioritize personalized learning, keeping our instructor-to-student ratios low to offer you the best individual attention. However, this also means that lesson slots can fill up fast, particularly on weekends and during peak holidays like MLK, President's weekend, or Spring Break. To secure your spot, we strongly advise booking your lessons as early as possible. If your preferred time/date is already full, don't worry; simply choose another time that suits you. If your preferred time is still not available or you are having any other difficulties reserving your lesson, please email us at

When it comes to renting ski and snowboard equipment, especially during busy periods like holidays and Spring Break, we recommend reaching out to Sunlight Ski & Bike ahead of your visit to Sunlight Mountain Resort. This ensures that you have the gear you need, making your visit smooth and enjoyable. Your adventure starts with a simple call or email, and we're here to assist you every step of the way.

For more questions about lessons and/or availability, please email us at, or for our ski and bike rental shop, email us at
