At Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center we pride ourselves in offering the most friendly and highest quality instruction in the nation. All of our instructors are coached by Professional Ski Instructors of America trainers, and many have also trained with US Ski Team accredited coaches. Our instructors love to share their passion for this sport. Whether you want a classic, skate or refresher course, the ski school is excited to offer private lessons this season.

By investing in lessons you will develop new skills, build confidence and improve skiing technique. Classes move at a comfortable pace and are individually tailored to students’ learning needs. We purposely keep the cost low to encourage guests to invest in their technique.

Private lessons are available daily for those 7 years and older. Lessons must be pre-orderd online. Book early: we often sell out.

DURING THE PURCHASING PROCESS – please indicate the following information and bring a credit/debit card if you have more than two people joining the lesson to pay the $20 additional per person fee:

  • If you wish to learn or refine the traditional (easier) style of cross country skiing or the more challenging ski skate technique
  • How many people will be in your group (same family/household only please)
  • Any notes that will help us select the best instructor for your needs
