If you need to learn to skate, but learn better in a small group (up to two skaters*), Winter Wonderland offers private skating lessons on-site. Each lesson runs 30 min and is conducted by one of our professional skating coaches. Lessons are available for skaters at all ages and abilities, so regardless of how young (or just young at heart) the skater, or how much they have to learn, our coaches are ready to help. Lessons are schedule by request only, and on a first-come-first-serve basis, so please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get scheduled before arriving. Lessons will be offered from 11am - 2pm on Saturdays (12/9, 12/16, & 12/23) while spots last.
* Additional fees may be included for groups larger than 2 skaters.
