Private Ski & Snowboard Lessons


Improve Your Skills at Your Own Pace

Whether you’re relatively new, a seasoned veteran, or someone in between Jiminy Peak’s ski school offers private ski and snowboarding lessons that will help you to develop your skills, hone your technique, and explore the mountain. Our experienced and PSIA/AASI certified instructors will tailor your lesson to your ability level and provide you with individualized feedback and attention that group lessons simply can’t match. This year we've added Family Private Ski and Snowboard Lessons to accommodate familes who want to lean together, have fun and create memories. Spots are limited, so please call 413.738.5500 x6205 or stop by the Snowsports desk, located in the lower level of JJ's Lodge to make your reservation. 

Private Ski & Snowboard Lessons are Tailored to Your Skill Level

Jiminy’s highly individualized private ski and snowboarding lessons are offered for Yellow, Green, Blue and Black ability levels (see Level Chart below). It is very helpful for us to know your ability level and communicate your expectations when reserving a lesson, so we can choose an instructor that will best serve you. 

Beginner Sessions (Yellow Level)

Yellow level private lessons are designed for those who have had at least an introduction to skiing or snowboarding and are looking to build upon their fundamentals. These types of one-on-one sessions will work on improving your basic skills such as: 

  • Turning
  • Speed Control
  • Downhill Movement
Intermediate & Advanced Sessions (Green, Blue, and Black Levels)

Green, blue, and black private lessons are focused on refining and improving your abilities and introducing you to new challenges. These students already have a pretty good grasp on the basics and are looking to push themselves out of their comfort zone. These sessions are where the fun really begins with instructors being able to introduce students to areas on the mountain like: 

  • Blue Square / Black Diamond Slopes
  • Moguls
  • Terrain Parks
