Snow Sports School

Welcome to Yawgoo Valley Snow Sports School!

Fun and Learning is the approach that the Yawgoo Valley Snow Sports Staff uses in coaching students that choose to come to Yawgoo Valley for their learning experiences.  Our staff is dedicated to providing quality instruction to children and adults of all ages and skill levels.  Our staff has been trained specifically in teaching skills based progressions from novice through advanced levels.  Many of our staff members have advanced their knowledge and skills base by becoming professionally certified in their discipline by Professional Ski Instructors of America and American Association of Snowboard Instructors (PSIA/AASI).  Some staff members are pursuing higher levels of certification and have attained other certifications such as Childrens Specialist 1 & 2, Freestyle Specialist 1 & 2.


We are no longer offering lessons for the 2017/2018 season. Savings pack holders should hold onto their vouchers for next season.
