Private Lesson FAQs

Does Mammoth offer group lessons?
Group lessons are no longer offered for the 18/19 season. If you're planning a trip for the 19/20 season, check the group lessons page for general information. 

Do I need to book my private lesson in advance?
Advanced reservations are highly recommended, especially during weekends and holidays. Popular instructors and lesson times book up fast. 

What time should I arrive to make it to my lesson?
We recommend arriving for morning lessons when our Rental Shops open at 8AM, and at least 1 hour before afternoon lessons begin. If you are able, pick up your rentals the afternoon prior to your lesson. 

How many people can be in the private lesson?
Our private lessons can have up to 5 people for no extra charge. We are able to accommodate lesson groups larger than 5 people if desired – please call 800.MAMMOTH to book a larger group.

Can I have multiple ability levels and age groups in the same private lesson?
This is not generally recommended. If you choose to do so, the instructor will choose the terrain that is best suited to the needs of the least experienced guest. When booking your private lesson, the more you can tell us about the experience you're looking for, the better we will be able to pair you with the best instructor for your needs. 

Can both skiers and snowboarders attend the same private lesson?
This is not generally recommended as it is very difficult for an instructor to teach snowboarding while wearing skis and vice versa. We can do our best to accommodate a private lesson for both disciplines so long as everyone is at an intermediate level or higher.

Can I split the private lesson time between multiple people?
Yes, your time with your private lesson instructor can be divided any way you like. For example, if you purchase an all-day private lesson, your instructor could spend the morning with your 3-year-old beginner and the afternoon with your 10-year-old intermediate. 

For all cancellations, please call 800.MAMMOTH.
