Prepare For Your Lesson

Arriving prepared for your lesson is key to maximizing your day on the slopes with your instructor. Below you can find information on where to go, what to expect, and what to bring.



Please check-in 10-15 minutes prior to the start of your lesson, with your gear. If you arrive late or without your equipment, we may not be able to accommodate you in a lesson for that day.

If you purchased a lift ticket or pass separate from your lesson bundle, please collect it before proceeding to your lesson meeting place.


If you purchased a rental package add on for your lesson, you will need to pick that equipment up before your lesson starts, either the morning of or preferably the night before. Please allow at least 60-75 minutes before the start of your lesson. Our adult rental locations at both bases (Legacy Sports and Canyon Mountain Sports) are open until 7:00PM for your convenience. Kids Ski & Snowboard School Rental locations are open until 5:00PM.

Park City has two separate base areas: Canyons Village and Mountain Village. The lesson location, as selected at the time of booking, will be listed on your confirmation email. You must check-in for the lesson at the Village where your lesson is booked. If you arrive at the incorrect location, your reserved lesson may not be available. Check your confirmation email for your lesson location, and look for the flags and signage to guide you to the on snow meeting areas for your specific lesson, or ask an employee for assistance. Please contact us in advance if your lesson needs to be moved to the alternate base.

  • Canyons Village: All lessons meet on the Ski Beach, across from the Grand Summit Hotel (between the Red Pine Gondola and Orange Bubble Express Lift)

"Staff was great.  Had three kids in ski and snowboard lessons and the instructors were all fantastic. We were a bit hesitant as we didn't know if the kids would like the group lessons, but they all loved them and said they would like to do them again."

"Amazing time. Felt safe on the slopes. We did a private lesson for our kids and the instructor was amazing. They were independently skiing within 2 half days without any previous experience."
