The Ski and Ride School offers daily group lessons at 10:30 am and 1:30 pm for ages 7 and up. We offer special packages and a fun experience for first time beginners. Limited class sizes ensure that you and yours can focus on fundamentals in a safe setting, hopefully making a friend or two in the process. Longtime skiers looking to hone their skill or convert to today’s modern gear will be surprised at the caliber of instructors based here in the mid-coast area. Improve your skiing (or riding) today- take a lesson!

Private lessons are the way to get individualized coaching at times that are convenient for you. “Anklebiter” private lessons are the option for children ages 3 to 6 to learn with us. Inquire about private lessons for all ages and ability levels, available most any time.
