Children's Lessons:
What's the best way to start my child skiing or snowboarding?  Private lessons!

Skiing for the first time is one of the most exciting experiences a child can have, and we want to make it valuable!  Parents who want their kids to ski or snowboard can insure their success for years to come by starting with a private lesson. At Nub's Nob we start every child with one-on-one private instructors because those "pick-up-sticks" group lessons just don't work for young skiers or riders.Think of teaching one 4-year-old how to catch a ball or play a musical instrument versus a group of 4-year olds. Which 4-year old learns to catch a ball or where middle C is first? Keeping children aged 2 to 7 years old interested takes individual attention. Our goal is to create lifetime skiers and snowboarders. There is no more effective way from a learning, safety or cost standpoint than one-on-one. Anyone 2nd grade or younger who cannot stop on command, load, ride and get off the chairlift without assistance must start with a private lesson. Remember, the best way to guarantee a life of winter fun is to start your child one-on-one with a teacher in a Winter Sports School Private Lesson.  Please check in for lesson 30 minutes before it begins.
