What you'll do
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!

I am the co-founder of Snow Schoolers, which is Tahoe's only independent platform for ski and snowboard lessons. I created Snow Schoolers with the vision of making learning to ski or snowboard easy and affordable for anyone. For instructors, we provide full schedule flexibility, professional training and certification, and market-leading earnings opportunities. Personally, I have been skiing since the age of 4, and first started teaching skiing professionally while in college in New Hampshire in 2005. Since then, I have spent equal parts of my career as a marketer, analyst and web developer.
