What you'll do

Get excited to discover the wonder & joy that is learnign to snowboard safely down a snowy winter wonderland. 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 snowboarding, 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!

This is the best time! A great way to learn how to snow board. The price is amazing for 2 hours of instruction in a small class size that feels like you are having a private lesson. I brought my 12 year old son who has high functioning autism and sensory processing disorder and together with one other snow boarder we were given a fantastic lesson that went at our pace. Sam was our instructor and he was amazing with my son, who was a little scared. Sam was right there helping him and giving him the confidence to try and try again. Sam was so good about helping each and everyone of the three of us in the class at each of our paces. We talked, laughed, fell a lot (part of being a beginner), got up and tried again. Sam was there every step of the way helping us get better and most of all making sure it was always fun! I would do this again in a heart beat. The whole staff is amazing, the site absolutely gorgeous!

I had a great beginner lesson with Javier. He was very patient, friendly, and full of encouragement and feedback for improvements. As an adult who has not been on the snow for over a decade, I thought the lesson was top notch and felt very much like I was taking a personal lesson. Each person on our group of 3 progressed at their own pace and Javier was able to give each person feedback tailored to their pace. Towards the last half of our lesson, our group was able to ride the pommel and get up on the beginner part of the slopes. I love that I was able to finally ride and feel competent enough to stop, slow down and have control of my board. It was a fun afternoon with a nice group and instructor. Thanks so much, Javier!

This was a great experience for my boys. It was their first time and the team was great. We got lucky on a holiday weekend and had a private lesson due to drop outs. The process was simple and easy . The team was expecting us for rentals and then the lesson. Recommend if this is your first Tahoe trip for boarding and skiing. Thank you again.

We started as beginners and were able to snowboard by the end of the lesson. We enjoyed our experience overall and they were even willing to give a little extra time to teach us.

Be very early and take a copy of your gear sign up sheet. The instructors are the best.
