Private Ski Lessons
Personalized one-on-one instruction, especially on a consistent basis, is the best way to learn this sport. Call or submit the form below to schedule a one hour lesson (try to schedule several days in advance). Cost is $70 for the first person and $35 dollars for each additional person.
We also have a 3 lesson private package which is a great way to cement and expand upon the skills you learn in the first lesson. If you sign up in advance each lesson is only $60. Only available for 1 person private lessons.

Snowshoe tours are two hours long and include your rental equipment and trail pass. They cost $60 per person with a 3 person minimum. Call or submit the form below.

Intro Ski Package
Galena Lodge Ski School has a very affordable lesson package for first-time skiers. This one-time offer costs $85 for one person and $55 for each additional person and includes your ski pass & ski rentals for the day as well as a one-hour private lesson. If two people are planning to rent and buy a pass anyway, the lesson is barely more.
