LEARN TO SKI OR SNOWBOARD

The Hart Snow School has been rider owned and operated since 1986. We offer group lessons, private coaching and special camps for all ages to learn and improve the skills of snowboarding and skiing. Our fun and relaxed atmosphere, along with the amazing venue of the Hart Ski Hill, gives you, the shredder, the ideal environment to excel on the mountain.

We operate at The Hart Highlands Winter Club in Prince George, BC. It is a unique hill offering the perfect terrain to hone in your skills on one plank or two. The hill has three lifts, perfectly groomed terrain and the right slope for learning all levels of riding - from linking your first turns to landing a new trick.
