The Ski & Ride School at Kirkwood is specifically developed to create the best learning experience possible. Although Kirkwood is known for having some of the best advanced and expert terrain in the region, what many don’t know is that our beginner and intermediate trails are some of the best learning terrain in the country.

Not only do they ski and ride here, but many of our instructors return year after year and provide specific information and instruction directly related to your experience level.
