Families that ski together, learn together. Grab your crew and enjoy a lesson with the Solitude Ski & Ride School that will improve everyone’s skills while emphasizing our commitment to community well-being.

 

Winter 20/21 is here, and many families are trying skiing for the first time — or bringing their kids and other family members into their favorite outdoor sports. Skiing and snowboarding offer physical activity and social interaction in the fresh air — all extra important during a pandemic.

Due to the importance of social distancing this year, the smallest children (ages 6 and under) are not being grouped together for lessons at Solitude during the 20/21 season. However, Solitude’s Ski & Ride School does offer the opportunity to families to learn together, creating memorable experiences and bumping up the fun as everyone’s skills improve!

Family lessons at Solitude are a great option for groups of up to 5 people and family members as young as three years old. They run from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., providing plenty of time for focused and constructive direction, while still leaving the rest of the afternoon for your family to recharge and try your new skills on the slopes!

Bring your little ones, teenagers, aunts and uncles, or even grandparents for a family lesson at Solitude! There’s no rule that says you have to have small kids, and skiing and snowboarding can be a fun outdoor and social activity for everyone to enjoy.

If you have children under age 7 who could use some dedicated one-on-one instruction, check out Solitude’s private lessons. They are available in one-hour increments for 3- and 4-year-olds, and in two-hour increments for 5- and 6-year-olds.

For children ages 7 and up, private lessons are available in increments of one hour, two hours, three hours (10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.), and a full day (9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.).
