Location: GoSnow lessons start at the Gondola Base. First Timer lessons will stay in the Beginner Zone (where the Magic Carpet Lift is), while more advanced levels will hop straight onto the Holiday Pair Lift or the Gondola at the start of their lesson.
Private Groups: All participants must be of the same or similar age and ability level, and must be on the same equipment (either ski or snowboard). Please note that GoSnow does not offer private lessons for groups with very different ages or ability levels (such as families with young children). In this case, separate lessons must be arranged. GoSnow are able to recommend other options that will allow you and your family to get the most out of your lessons.
Young Children: All private lessons for children under the age of 6 are subject to approval by the GoSnow Snowsports Manager.
Ability Level: Private lessons are tailored to your needs. Advising GoSnow of your ability level in advance allows the most suitable instructor to be allocated to your lesson, and for them to plan your lesson in advance. Please take a look at the skills chart below if you are unsure of your ability level.
