Edmonton, Jasper, Banff, and Whistler's Best Personalized Snowboard Lessons

Our Mission and Values


Snowboard Lessons was founded on the principle that winter sports is for everyone. George, the owner and operator, was disappointed at the rate ski hills and ski resorts were overcharging and outpricing families that wanted to participate in winter activities, particularly snowboarding, with some charging nearly $100/hour. To add, they provided inexperienced instructors with overcrowded classes which all too often led to injuries to beginners as they did not receive the one on one attention they deserve to learn the fundamentals. Too many quit before they even got started.

At Snowboard Lessons our mission is to provide personalized lessons at an affordable price using safe practises to allow each individual to discover their passion for snowboarding. We are dedicated to challenging you at your own pace while you begin to understand balance, edge work, and gain the confidence to carve down the hill safely with proper technique. Proudly we have never had a single individual who has not been able to learn to snowboard or who has suffered an injury. 

George has been passionately teaching snowboarding for over 25 years and with his proven approach most students are able to get down a hill after one lesson. A former educator and manager of large teams in huge corporations he understands that there is no cookie cutter approach when working one on one with individuals. George takes safety seriously, he is certified in First Aid and is also a certified playground inspector. His motto is 'Safety Always'. He is an avid runner, and often surfs in California and Australia. His favorite mountains to snowboard include Goats Eye, Sunshine Village, Lake Louise, Marmot Basin, Kicking Horse, Revelstoke, Blackcombe, and Whistler.

Thank you for visiting, we hope you choose us to develop your skillset and discover that snowboarding is for you. Happy and safe riding, from the entire team at Snowboard Lessons.
