Private Lesson Policies and Reservation Information


Private lesson reservations require a minimum of 48 hours before the lesson day and time. Our busy weekend and holiday periods book-up early, so be sure to plan ahead to avoid disappointment.

For private lesson reservations, please call (425) 434-6748. Our in-season office hours are Monday thru Sunday, 9am to 5pm. When calling, please have the student’s name(s), age, skiing or snowboarding level, date of lesson and name of desired instructor if known. Please leave a message with the most convenient contact information for you as the phone lines do get busy during peak season. Please be aware when we return your call our number lists as “UNKNOWN’ or “PRIVATE CALLER”.


Please check in at least one hour prior to lesson time if you need rentals. Be sure to allow time for traffic and parking, especially on weekends and during holiday periods. See Below for specific information on each base area.

Reservation students arriving after the scheduled lesson start time will lose the reservation and will be charged for the full amount of the private lesson (or debited the Private Lesson 3Pak equivalent). A student arriving after the scheduled lesson start time will be placed on a first-come, first-served basis. We will make every attempt to get you or your student into a lesson, at no extra charge, if instructors are available. Additional students are welcome, but must be of the same age and ability level.

In the event of Interstate 90 closures or closures of The Summit at Snoqualmie, we will automatically cancel the lesson reservation and contact you to reschedule. If I-90 and The Summit at Snoqualmie are open, your lesson will go on. This is a mountain environment with varying weather and road conditions, and we are still open when chains are required for pass travel. Plan accordingly by calling 511 from your cell phone or checking our web site which has links for roads, weather and cameras.


  • To postpone a private lesson reservation, please call our Summit SnowSports School office at (425) 434-6748.
  • Private lessons can be postponed and rescheduled. The guest will be charged a $50 administration fee for rescheduling their lesson.
  • There are no refunds for Private Lessons and all lessons and 3 packs expire at the end of the season of purchase.
