SKI LESSONS & PRICES

Buy a new toy and you’ll smile for a day, learn to ski and you’ll smile for a lifetime! 

Let’s make the most out of your ski or snowboard trip to Gudauri by taking your technique to the next level! Our range of private and group lesson and discounted package options can be booked individually or together with friends and family. Each lesson is individually tailored to the student(s); we ski at a pace suitable for you and take breaks when you want them. 

Location: Our instructors will meet you wherever is most convenient within the area of Gudauri Ski Resort based on your ability level and the location of your accommodation. Group lessons meet in New Gudauri.
Equipment: Rental equipment is not included in the price of lessons. We can recommend a good rental shop based on your location; prices are about $15 USD/person/day.
Ski lift pass: Ski passes must be purchased directly from the resort and cannot be purchased in advance.
Extras: Available from the end of January, apres ski massages with Vagabond Ski School’s experienced massage therapist can be added to any package for $40 USD per hour. Yoga classes will also be available on a pay-what-you-want basis. 

Insurance: Vagabond ski school disclaims all liability for injuries which occur during lessons. Our students are not covered by any insurance and are highly recommended to purchase their own travel insurance or ensure that their current health insurance covers skiing and snowboarding abroad. We recommend World Nomads

PRIVATE LESSONS

Book a private instructor for 1-6 people for the most personalized ski experience

Half Day

Morning: 10:30 to 13:00
Afternoon: 13:30 to 16:00

Best for:
Absolutely everybody. Half days are our most popular option.

Enough time for significant progress, not too much to wear you out. Half day lessons (especially in our discounted 3 and 5 × half day courses!) offer the best value for your money, giving you the opportunity to combine learning with an instructor and practicing on your own. A half day is enough time to thoroughly work on the aspects of your technique which most need improvement, and you’ll have the other half of the day to practice at your own pace and be in tiptop shape for the next lesson. We recommend a 3 × half day course as a minimum for first-time skiers and snowboarders to become confident and able to safely explore the slopes on their own, and a 5 × half day course is best for skiers who want to successfully make parallel turns and snowboarders to link their turns down intermediate slopes.

Full Day

10:30 to 16:00

Best for:
Those with a lot of energy who want to improve as quickly as possible.

The ultimate path to skiing like a pro! A full day ski/snowboard lesson in Gudauri is sure to wear you out, but this unquestionably the best way to get the most out of your time. A lot of progress can be made in a full day of skiing with an instructor! The fastest learners are often skiing intermediate slopes by the end of their first full day lesson, and it’s not uncommon to go from zero to racing down advanced slopes by the end of a 5 × full day course. If you have a strong motivation to enjoy skiing to its fullest as quickly as possible, this course is for you. For those who want to make the most out of only a few days in Gudauri, the 3 × full day course will help you take your skiing/riding to the next level.
