Ski School + Snowshoe Tours
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 $65 for the first person and $35 dollars for each additional person.
If you’d like the extra assurance of a guide on your snowshoe adventure or if you just want the extra company, then schedule a snowshoe tour! Snowshoe tours are two hours long and include your rental equipment and trail pass. They cost $45 per person with a 3 person minimum . If you’re going to rent equipment and buy a trail pass, you might as well get a guide too, because the cost is nearly the same. 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.
