General Information

Lesson reservations must be made at least 48-hours in advance online, by phone or purchased same-day (based on availability) at our Snowsports Sales Desk (located next to the Rental Shop left of the grand staircase). Our Sales team honors daily registration cut-off times to ensure our Instructors start their lessons on time. A reservation guarantees your lesson, however you must arrive on time. We cannot guarantee accommodation into lessons for late arrivals. Please be on time and be sure to confirm your registration with the Snowsports Sales Desk at least 30-minutes prior to your lesson start time.

Daily lesson availability is limited Friday-Sunday and on Holidays. If you intend to register for lessons same-day, we recommend arriving at the Sales Desk by 8 a.m. and our team will do our best to secure your lesson.

Please allow for extra time upon arrival at Crystal Mountain to park/shuttle. Be sure to purchase tickets and rentals in advance of your lesson so you can check in, gear up and meet your instructor in the Snowsports Meeting Area at the top of the grand staircase at your lesson start time.
