Get excited to discover the wonder & joy that is safely sliding down a snowy winter wonderland on skis. We are based in the oldest ski hill in the Lake Tahoe area, which first opened way back in 1929! During this experience we will learn briefly about the history of skiing, the Lake Tahoe region, and Granlibakken's roots at the start of it all. We'll then get you fitted with all of the equipment you need, and head out to the ski hill. We prioritize safety, fun, and learning, in that order. Everyone progresses at different rates, but it is very likely that by the end of our lesson, you'll be comfortable using the lift and getting down a beginner run all by yourself!

Love this skiing lesson for my 6 and 7 year old girls. It was their first time and their instructor Mason was super attentive and patient. Will definitely come back here.

I’ve never skied before, but halfway through the lesson I could safely get up and down the mountain and pretty much ski in any direction I wanted to. Thanks for the experience!

This was my 16 y.o. daughter's first time skiing. During the lesson turning left seemed to come more naturally to her, but she had trouble turning right. The instructor tried a couple different ways to teach her how to turn right and the third way was the charm. She went from not knowing how to ski to being able to ski down the beginner hill comfortably. Now skiing if her "favorite" sport. Great job teaching and thank you!
