Hermon Mountain Ski School

Private/Semi-Private Lessons

Our Private and Semi-private lessons are for skiers or snowboarders of all ages and abilities.  The lesson will begin in front of the lodge at the specified "lesson time." The student/ students will be greeted and introduced to the Instructor at this time.

The class will last 1 hour for private lessons and 1 hour and 15 minutes for semi-private lessons.  Parents/guardians are asked to meet the students in front of the Lodge at the end of the lesson.  Private and Semi- Private lessons are more personalized than a group lesson.

First, the Instructor will assess the studentís ability, if there is a particular skill that the student would like to work on they should tell the Instructor at the beginning of the lesson, so that together they can set goals for the class.

These are goals only, each student progresses at different rates, there is no guarantee that any or all of these skills will be attempted or mastered. The Instructor will then teach the student about skiing or snowboarding, using many different activities designed to familiarize the student with the sport.  If the student or students are able to safely stop and turn to a level that the Instructor deems proficient, then they will go up the lift. There is no guarantee that the class will go up the lift.

A ski ticket is required for all lessons whether the class uses the lift or not.  If the lift is used during a lesson, the student may ride with the Instructor, another student, ski patrol, a volunteer from the lift line, or by himself or herself.  

Skiing and Snowboarding are wonderful activities that we enjoy very much.  We appreciate you giving us the opportunity to share these sports with you.
