Family's and friend's private lessons

Whether you’re learning a new hobby as a family or with your same minded friends, or polishing existing talent, our private lessons are a great way to have fun as a family or with group of friends.
You’ll have your own instructor who’ll make sure you have some long lasting memories!

One of the best parts of taking a family/friend vacation is getting to spend quality time together. Skiing with your children is one of the most rewarding winter outdoor experiences for a parent. Private lessons make it possible to spend time together exploring ski slopes of Ruka while building skills and memories together. 

Note that participants should have the same discipline and similar ability level.
In cases where abilities differ the lesson will progress on upon the level of the participant with the lowest ability and skill level. Read more about skill levels of skiing.

For first time skiers at beginner's level it is good to notice that adults and youngest children learn in a different method and pace. Although, we can keep little breaks during the lesson, trying zip-line or some other playground obstacles. For kids younger than 5 years we recommend to try first skiing at 30min or 50min long one-to-one private lesson.

Ski passes, first-time skiing/snowboarding experience

If you are complete beginner, you will need usually for the first two lessons at least the Rosa & Rudolf Family Park - ticket (10€/person/day). Or you may also buy the combination day ticket for the use of Gondola lift and Family Park entrance, that is from 3-11 years: 18€/day, and teen & adults: 22€/day. 

For your next lesson(s) to improve your skills to next level: usually during the 3rd lesson you should be ready to learn to use other lifts (pole-lift, Gondola-lift, chair-lifts) and ski/board down at blue level slopes - and you'll then need normal lift ticket (that also has access to Rosa & Rudolf Family Park).
