Skiing and snowboarding are great ways to have fun and spend time with friends and family all while getting some fresh air and exercise. But like any new activity, we know learning to ski or snowboard can sometimes be an overwhelming and challenging experience. Luckily, Brimacombe’s enthusiastic instructors and staff are ready to help you start skiing or boarding in the safest and “funnest” way possible! While, you probably shouldn't expect to conquer black diamonds your first time on the slopes, that doesn't mean you have to stick to the bunny hill either!

LESSON UPDATE: Due to the restrictions set out by the Province of Ontario and Durham Health, Brimacombe will be offering private lessons only, at this time. Please note, you MUST have booked a lift ticket reservation and equipment rental (if needed) before booking a private lesson. LEARN MORE →
