For the best way to learn to ski or snowboard, most flexibility and value for money, you can’t go past a Private Lesson at Cardrona. Maximise your time with 1-on-1 attention from one of our professional, certified Snow Sports School instructors. Learn what you want, when you want to – choose from a 1.5hr, 2hr, 3hr or 6hr private lesson. Because kids and adults learn to ski or snowboard differently, we recommend taking separate lessons – but we can run them at the same time so you all start and end together. Booking at least the evening before your lesson is essential to make sure you get your desired time slot and instructor.
