If you have always dreamed of learning a snowsport, whether it is skiing or snowboarding, then look no farther than the ski and snowboard school at Whitetail Resort. The Schools at Whitetail will be happy to introduce you to the "Discovery" method of learning to ski or ride. Our expert instructors are some of the best on the East Coast. We are confident that after your lesson, you will be ready to embark on a lifetime adventure on the snow. If you are looking to brush up your existing skills, then perhaps a private lesson will help get you to that next ability level. Our class lessons are only $45.00 and last an hour for classes with one to two people, and a little over an hour for classes with three or more. Classes may exceed the scheduled time. Please report to lineup 10 minutes prior to your lesson time. If you would prefer a private lesson, reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 717.328.9400, ext. 3561.

Is your child anxious to shred on a snowboard, but too young for our Kid's Mountain Camp? Then ask about our NEW "Ollie Alley", a snowboard playground for kids ages 3-5.
