Winter Sports School

This year we are going to approach snow sports education differently at Tamarack Resort. We have been working diligently to build a 100% Nationally Certified Staff of Instructors through the Professional Ski Instructors of America and American Association of Snowboard Instructors. We have come to the realization that snow sports education in general is beginning to look different. We’re moving away from the one size fits most generalities that all students learn the same, and that there is a system that they can fit into.

With this said this year we have eliminated some of our programs that didn’t serve this purpose, and only kept what we believe will be the best inclusive experience. For the new student learning basic maneuvers and the intermediate to expert level rider looking to further hone their skills constantly progressing to become the best they can be. Our products this year are meant to provide an experience that will be remembered for seasons to come.

We challenge you to invest in yourself and come out and spend a day with us on the snow, after all as many of the greats have said before us, there is never a wasted day out on the snow with friends, and we truly believe that.

ITTY BITTY PRIVATE LESSON

Our Itty Bitty private is intended for children 6 and under. This product is intended as an introduction to the winter riding experience and is completely paced off of the participant. This is a great choice for kids who may not want a two-hour lesson, and are timid to just dive right in. We intend this lesson to be a safe, fun, and exciting way to engage into Snow Sports. It is also a great resource for parents to offer their children a refresher lesson to work out the kinks of just getting back on the hill. This product includes a complimentary lift ticket and can have rentals by choosing the package price.

3 HOUR PRIVATE LESSON

A standalone experience, this is the product we think is a great rider experience. When fundamentals and learning progressions are instilled, it is important to give the client time to practice and incorporate all that has been introduced into real riding applications. The three-hour private experience offers great opportunity to learn and practice new skills and the extra time gives guests the time to hone their newly acquired movement patterns. It is a great choice for those looking for a little more practice time or the ability to explore more of the mountain.

Our Philosophy

We have come to the realization that snow sports education in general is beginning to look different. We’re moving away from the one size fits most generalities that all students learn the same, and that there is a system that they can fit into. Instead we are taking this opportunity to re-connect back to the start, what we as snow sports educators can do to facilitate the best possible outcome for the student. That is not to say that we are moving away from making sure our students have a solid foundation of principles and progressions to learn from, however it is making sure we as snow sports professionals create the bond needed in order to safely navigate the wondrous opportunities that a mountain resort has to offer.We as a school want to meet all the needs of our clients. From making sure that equipment is going to fit correctly, to checking that our guests have everything they need in order to be successful, to telling the best jokes, or recommending what to eat at the local restaurants it is important for us to connect with the student, client, and our guests.
