I see that lessons are not available online 48 hours in advance, does this mean lesson are sold out?2021-09-28T19:00:10+00:00

No, MSS will sometimes have openings in our lessons. The 48-hour blackout online is to allow for proper staffing at the MSS. Please call the MSS Office for information regarding short-notice lessons. We do not guarantee availability for lessons within 48 hours, but the staff will do their best to accommodate your lesson needs. Please call us for lesson reservations inside 48 hours. These reservations will be assessed at the window rate.

Does the MSS offer Telemark Lessons?2021-09-28T19:00:56+00:00

Unfortunately we are not able to offer these lessons.

Are Private or Group lessons better?2019-05-30T16:41:26+00:00

In general, children 5 and under will learn more in private lessons because the instructor can teach at the pace of one student instead of many. For ages 5 and up, how an individual learns is different for everyone. For many, learning in a group environment is best. For others, one-on-one instruction is best.

What is the average size of a group lesson?2021-09-28T19:02:02+00:00

The size of group lessons can vary based on the weekend and the age group and level of the students.

Can a student with disabilities be included in a group lesson?2021-09-28T19:03:51+00:00

Depending on the disability we will try our best to accommodate what we can. We also recommend Winter Park and Steamboat in Colorado for specialty lessons as they have the equipment and instructors with the proper certifications.

What ability level should I sign up for?2021-11-02T18:59:46+00:00

Lesson ability levels are based on what skills had been achieved in a prior lesson. Please see Ability Levels for more in-depth descriptions.

How early do we need to arrive before a lesson?2019-05-30T16:36:24+00:00

The MSS ask that all students are checked in for their lesson at least 30 minutes prior to their lesson. If you are also getting rentals please allow 1 hour to be fitted and ready for the lesson. We ask that all students meet at the meeting place 5 minutes prior to the lesson starting time.

What is the youngest age accepted into a lesson?2021-09-28T19:05:56+00:00

3 and 4 year olds have the option to take a 1 hour lesson at 9 am or Noon for $108. For more information please visit our Private Lesson Page.

Can a Youth (5-12 yrs) Student join an older Teen (13-17 yrs) Sibling in a group lesson?2019-05-30T16:30:21+00:00

While staff does their best to accommodate families, in general, the age difference between most Teen groups and Youth groups is too great. A private family lesson may be the best option.
