Beginner Lessons

Jay Peak is a great place to learn a sport that you’ll love for a lifetime. Our terrain-based learning system – The Zone – has a mini-pipe, rollers, return walls, and the perfect slope. It also features its own lift, trails and even an introductory glade system. Our instructors are trained to get you moving and having fun from the moment you step on snow. The terrain based lesson will have you learning in a fear-free environment where you can learn the right movements thanks to the aid of our sculpted snow features.

The Ski & Ride School is now closed for the 2013+14 season.

2013+14 Jay Day (ages 11+)

One of the biggest mistakes people make is jumping on skis or a snowboard for the first time and skipping the lesson. No wait, the biggest mistake is letting your boyfriend/girlfriend teach you. Anyway, we’ve made it easy to make the right decision. If you’ve never skied or ridden before you probably need equipment – so we’ve wrapped a complimentary lesson into our rental prices. The rates below include full rental equipment (ski or snowboard setup) and a 2-Hour Group Lesson. If you’re planning on taking the lesson anyway, swing by The Rental Shop to pick up the specialty beginner equipment that’ll make your day easier.
