Top four Tahoe learn to ski and snowboard deals:

(1) Boreal’s TAKE 3, RIDE FREE
Recognized as one of the country’s best beginner programs , this pre-paid package automatically enrolls you into the Take 3, Ride FREE program and includes (3) Single Day Half Day Lesson Packages and a FREE 2016-17 Season Pass on your fourth visit! What we like about Boreal Mountain resort is the fact that it is easy to get to with quick access off of Highway 80 on Donner Summit plus an added bonus of night skiing.

(2) Homewood’s $59 adult ski and snowboard first-timer packages
Homewood Mountain Resort offers the best learn to ski/snowboard deal in the Lake Tahoe region – for just $59. Sunday through Friday, non-holiday, first-timers will receive a half-day lesson along with all-day equipment rental (helmet not included in package but available at an additional cost) and beginner lift ticket – It’s everything you need to make your first turns on snow!

Simply purchase your Learn to Ski or Learn to Ride package online, at least 2 days in advance of your desired lesson date to receive the special $59 price all season long.

Those interested in making a real commitment to learning to ski or snowboard can score the ultimate deal – Homewood’s Learn to Ski/Ride 3-pack comes out to just $59/day and includes three full days of lift tickets, rentals and lessons, as well as the Learn to Ski/Ride guarantee – you’ll be skiing/snowboarding down one of our signature upper mountain beginner runs by your third day, or your fourth day is free. What we also like at Homewood is their incredible lake views; skiing and riding down Homewood slopes gives you a breathe-taking view of the lake. Very beautifully scenic for a first timer. Romantic setting no less. ūüėČ

(3) Learn how to ski or snowboard for just $99 at Alpine Meadows Monday-Friday for ages 13+

First time lesson package includes everything you need

+ Beginner lift ticket
+ Equipment rental (skis, boots, poles -or- snowboard, boots)
+ 2.25 hr beginner lesson

The advantage of learning to ski or snowboard on non-holiday weekdays is you’ll get more personal attention and the fact of having the whole mountain to yourself – less people on the slopes.

(4) Donner Ski Ranch offers perhaps the best deal all-around; even on weekends and holidays, the price is the same: adults, youths, and seniors can sign up for the learn to ski or snowboard deal package for $99 while child(ages 7-12) package is $79. Why pay the high price of big moutain resorts when you only need a bunny hill to learn on?

Designed for first-time skiers and beginners, our Learn to Turn package includes a restricted lift ticket, granting access to beginner terrain on the front of the mountain via the skiing moving carpet and chairlifts #4 and #6, ski or snowboard equipment rental package, and a 1.5 hour group lesson.
