Group Ski & Snowboard Lessons

Regardless if this is your 100th ski season or your first, there is always something new to learn on the slopes. Boston Mills and Brandywine’s SnowSports School offers a variety of group lessons designed to teach and improve technique, confidence, ability and safety on the slopes. Our instructors are trained to adapt each lesson to the needs and interests of the group. We ensure that each lesson takes place in a positive, encouraging and fun environment so that you can feel comfortable trying something new.

Boston Mills and Brandywine make it easy for first time skiers or snowboarders to get out on the slopes. Please checkout our special packages for your first time out.

General Lesson Options

These lessons are priced "a la carte," meaning that you are only paying for the lesson itself. Keep in mind that EVERYONE who is out on the slopes--even those who are only taking a 1.5 -hour lesson - are required to have a valid Snow Pass. Snow Pass pricing can be found above. Special package options for beginners can be found on our Ticket Specials page.
