Private Lessons

Private lessons offer coaching for every skier and rider, from freestyle athletes to first-timers. For ages 2 and older, these lessons are the best way to personalize your mountain experience.


  • Whether you’ve had one or one hundred days on the snow, any skier, rider or telemark skier can schedule a session to fine-tune their turns.


  • For both seasoned and hopeful competitors, our specialized coaches will help hone the skills you’ll use on the course. And did we mention training on the longest, steepest bump run in the East?


  • Killington’s parks are legendary, and these are the sessions to get skiers and riders throwing their best tricks. From sliding your first rail in our custom Easy Street Progression Park to navigating the Super Pipe like a pro, our Snow Sports coaches will take you there.


  • There’s more than just 752 acres of designated trails at Killington – that’s right, the woods are good, too. With a glades and natural woods session, you’ll discover an additional 745 acres of terrain and learn to ski or ride them like a local.


  • The family that skis and rides together, stays together. Whether new to the sport or more advanced with similar abilities, we'll address individual goals, develop skills and explore new terrain all while keeping the family together.
