Skiing and Snowboarding Lessons at June Mountain and Mammoth Mountain

Skiing and snowboarding are two of the top activities that attract guests to our Mammoth Lakes rentals. But you don’t have to be an experienced skier or snowboarder to enjoy the slopes and all that Mammoth ski rentals have to offer.

Skiing and snowboarding lessons can introduce you to these fun winter activities.

Why Should You Take Skiing and Snowboarding Lessons?

Why bother taking skiing and snowboarding lessons? Sure, you can rent all of your gear and head out onto the beginner slopes, but lessons will help you develop the skills you need to succeed and stay safe. 

If this is your first time at our Mammoth Mountain vacation rentals and you have no experience with skiing or snowboarding, lessons are an absolute must. Safety is of the utmost importance, and lessons will give you the opportunity to learn foundational skills from a professional.

If it’s been a while since your last ski trip, it may be worthwhile to invest in a lesson to help you get your groove back.

Even if you’re an experienced skier and snowboarder, lessons can help you progress and move on to more difficult slopes. People who have been skiing for decades can still find classes that will teach them something new or help them brush up on new skills.

Lessons can be fun, and they are worth every penny. From group lessons to private family lessons, individual sessions and adaptive lessons, there is something for everyone. Both half-day and full-day lessons are available, and you can find options for all experience levels. 

Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned veteran, there are lessons that will teach you new and valuable skills.

The Benefit of Taking Skiing or Snowboarding Lessons

There are many benefits to taking skiing or snowboarding lessons.

  • Safety on the slopes:
    Lessons help you stay safe on the slopes. Whether you’re skiing or snowboarding, you will have help from an experienced instructor who will teach you the basics and give you pointers. If you don’t take lessons and just try to ski or snowboard on your own, you may injure yourself or others on the slopes.
  • Foundational skills:
    Lessons will help you develop the foundational skills you need to ski or snowboard safely on the slopes. If you continue to take lessons, you can progress further and move on to more difficult terrain.
  • Advanced skills:
    For those who have experience skiing, lessons can help you get over that plateau and move on to more challenging slopes. With private instruction or even group instruction, you can work on new skills or improve problem areas that are holding you back. 
  • A fun challenge:
    If this is your first time hitting the slopes, lessons can present a fun challenge. Overcoming that challenge will give you a rewarding sense of accomplishment.
  • More confidence:
    Even the smallest bunny slope may seem difficult at first, but after a few sessions with an instructor, you will feel more confident in your skills.
  • Physical conditioning:
    Skiing and snowboarding are both challenging activities that get your body moving in new ways. You’ll burn calories, improve your flexibility, strengthen your lower body muscles and engage your core muscles. 

Many beginners find that as their skills progress, they develop a true love for the sport and feel inspired to take more winter vacations. 

Our Mammoth ski rentals provide easy access to lessons.

Where Can You Take Skiing Lessons Near Mammoth?

Mammoth has no shortage of ski and snowboarding instructors. Our Sierra Megeve and snowbird vacation rentals are located right across from the Canyon Lodge ski school

The Main Lodge offers skiing and snowboarding lessons as well as gear rentals. This lodge offers easy access to the summit, parks, and trails for all experience levels.

Canyon Lodge’s entry-level ski school is ideal for beginners. The Lodge has four lifts as well as one kid lift that provide access to the entire mountain.

Eagle Lodge also offers lessons and a family-friendly atmosphere. This Lodge is a bit smaller than the others, but you can take a shuttle from town right to the front door.

But if it’s cross country skiing and snowshoeing you want, head to the Tamarack Lodge, which is just a quick five-minute drive from 1849 Mountain Rentals. They don’t offer lessons, but chances are, you won’t need them for this type of outdoor snow adventure.
