Private Lessons

Mt. Bachelor's private lessons provide the best value and greatest opportunity for success on the mountain for skiers and riders of any ability. They are also a great way to have your whole family learn together as a group. The instructors selected to teach private lessons are certified by the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) and have the highest level of experience. Private lessons include priority lift access to most lifts to ensure more time on snow and less time waiting in line. All lessons meet at the West Village teaching area unless otherwise discussed with your instructor.
