Many ski resorts run discounts on group lessons from time to time. But [R169R, Heavenly Mountain Resort] offers a way to get a discount on private lessons.

The resort sells Private Lesson Two-Packs that grant a $100 savings compared to purchasing two private lessons at the ticket window. The two-packs include two full-day private lessons, which can be just for you or include up to five more of your friends or family members at no additional cost.

Private Lesson Two-Packs cost $1,050. That makes the cost of each full-day lesson $525 instead of $575 or $600, depending on the pricing during the season. The two-packs are available for purchase online or by phone.  

Private lessons are a way to gain personalized instruction. They can provide guided routes through unfamiliar terrain and fast lift access. Full-day private lessons, which start at 9:45 a.m., last six hours. Only the instruction is included in the fee; lift tickets are extra.

Lessons purchased with the two-packs can be redeemed any time during the season, and the lessons do not have to be scheduled on consecutive days. A ski school representative contacts purchasers for scheduling the lessons.

The non-refundable, non-transferable lesson two-packs must be purchased at least three weeks before the first lesson is scheduled. A maximum of 10 Private Lesson Two-Packs is allowed per transaction. No discounts are available for half-day private lessons.
