Lake Tahoe Winter Lessons and Guides

Every Lake Tahoe resort offers ski and snowboard lessons for all ages and all levels. Taking a lesson with a certified professional is a great way to get started for the first time on skis or a snowboard, or to refresh your muscle memory after a few years away from the slopes.

For the expert skier or rider who is looking for a one-of-a-kind experience, many local mountains offer guided tours, both in and out of bounds, for the adventurous Tahoe visitor.
