Snow Sports School

Peek’n Peak has been transforming guests into Winter Sports Enthusiasts for decades! Generations of skiers and snowboarders have grown up on the slopes of The Peak, including several professionals and Olympians. At our Snow Sports School, guests are guided along an easy five-step learning program that celebrates fun & builds snow sport confidence.

After mastering the beginner area, you’ll graduate to the slopes. Peek’n Peak’s unique geography allows skiers and snowboarders to master techniques on less intimidating elevations. Shorter runs provide skiers and snowboarders the opportunity to ride slopes dozens of times.

build your confidence in our fun & forgiving beginner area

Our Beginner Area is designed to build your confidence. As you learn to slide on snow, you’ll be taken through five training areas that focus on specific techniques of snowboarding and skiing. If you sign up for a lesson through our Snow Sports School, you will have a friendly and supportive instructor by your side the entire time.

Each element of the Beginner Area is carefully designed. Our beginner hill, for example, has a slight curve. As you approach the sides of the slope, the banked edges will slow you down and assist you in making a turn. Then you’ll be guided back towards the center of the hill.


Our primary goal at the Snow Sports School is to ensure that every guest has a fun, memorable experience in a safe, forgiving environment. We hope you’ll discover a passion for skiing or snowboarding here at the Snow Sports School, and hopefully that passion lasts you a lifetime!
