Lessons are an important part of skiing and snowboarding. They teach you on-hill safety, your responsibility code, and, more importantly, the skills to ski or snowboard in various terrain and conditions, so you too can enjoy skiing and snowboarding for a lifetime. Campgaw Mountain offers both daily private and group lessons, as well as multi-week programs in our Snowsports Academy. Snowsports School participants are trained under PSIA, AASI, USASA and USSA guidelines by our certified instructors and coaches.
