Lessons


Lessons / Programs

We are excited to again offer a great selection of programs for all ages. All group classes, except for Kinderski, start at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. daily. Group lesson programs are only offered on the weekends for all levels—Youth, Kid Kruizer and Adult sessions. Classes that fall below three students will be considered private or semi-private lessons and the lesson duration will be adjusted. During the week, parties of three or more skiing or boarding together can participate in lesson programs at the group rate.

Kinderski is the ideal introduction to snow sports. It’s separate from the regular ski school with its own instructors and meeting place. Children in Kinderski are supervised the entire time and provided excellent instruction. There is, on average, one instructor for every four kids. Lunch is served to children staying all day, and with our great beginner area in back of the building, its like back yard play time for the kids. Kinderski is available every day, half-days or full-days. The morning session starts at 10 a.m. and ends at noon. The afternoon session runs from 1 – 3:00 p.m, but its a good idea to arrive 15 minutes early to ensure your child will make it in time. If you plan on being a regular Kinderski customer take advantage of the “Kinderski 6-Pack”, a punch card consisting of 6 half-day visits (without rental equipment) for your 3-6 year olds a discounted price of just $168.

The Kid Kruizers program gives children quality ski and snowboard instruction within a group structure. Learning within a group of similar aged kids can be the perfect way for young kids to overcome their apprehensions. The program is excellent as a precursor to Discovery’s ESP Team, as alternative for kids who are not able to make it every weekend or just want to improve their skills. Kid Kruizers is available for half-days or full-days on Saturdays & Sundays only. It is not available during the weekdays unless it falls on a holiday weekend, i.e. President’s Day Monday or during Christmas Break. Full day goes from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The half day morning session goes from 10:30 a.m. to noon. The half day afternoon session goes from 1:30 to 3 p.m.

Our adult programs are designed to advance your on-snow IQ, show you the mountain and ensure you have a great time doing it. Classes run five consecutive Wednesdays or Fridays beginning January 18, 2017 with a make up day available the 6th week. They include a two-hour group lesson each day and a luncheon on the final day with a make up day and are broken into 3 distinct skill sets to ensure you are in a group that suits you. The instructor for all classes is Yvonne Leipheimer, PSIA-certified instructor who excels at helping skiers break through plateaus and take their skiing to another level. The deadline for sign up is January 16th. The prices for all three classes are shown below.

The Discovery Ski Education Foundation


The Discovery Ski Education Foundation (DSEF) is a nonprofit, parent-run organization. The team has been at the heart of coaching young athletes with talent and enthusiasm since Discovery’s early days. Members of our team develop more than just the ability to ski extremely well — they also learn valuable life skills like discipline, focus and teamwork. Though being the speediest on the slopes often seems to be the priority.

SNOW SPORTS SCHOOL

The Discovery Ski School teaches thousands of local children and adults to ski and snowboard each year. Our instructors are all trained by PSIA-certified clinicians, and we take care to hire instructors who are as good with people as they are on snow. With our ski school, you’ll not only learn, you’ll have a great time doing it. For more information on our lessons and programs, call us at 406-563-2184.
