2021-22 Lessons

Welcome to the school where lessons are more than just learning! Here at Ragged Mountain Resort, we offer group and private lessons, as well as full day and half day programs for kids at our Adventure Camp.

Limited Lift Ticket Availability 
Lift ticket sales may be limited to ensure a quality mountain experience. Due to anticipated high demand, especially during peak holiday periods, lift tickets and rentals must be purchased online in advance. In the event lift tickets sell out, guests will not be able to buy them in-resort at the ticket window. Mission: Affordable season passes, Mission Four’dable quad pack tickets, Buddy Tickets purchased with the passholder present, resort lodging guests, and lift tickets bought as part of a ski and snowboard school package are guaranteed access.

Private Lessons

If you're looking for a more personalized attention to help build your skills, a private lesson is probably the best option for you! Private lessons are available to skiers and riders of all ability levels. Whether it is your first time on the slopes, or you have been skiing or riding for years, working one-on-one with a professional instructor is the best way to tailor the lesson experience to your needs. Advanced reservations are preferred for scheduling. Private lessons can be arranged without reservations depending on instructor availability. Participants are required to have a valid lift ticket. Ragged will send a confirmation email to each Private Lesson participant with arrival and meeting location instructions prior to their arrival day. 

The only programs we offer for children under 6 years old are Private Lessons. 

Cancellation Policy:

We take all payment in full at the time of the booking. Outside of 72 hours of the reservation, you may receive a refund minus a $25 fee per day, per lesson.  Inside of 72 hours of the reservation NO REFUND
