You may ski a hundred days a year, but there’s always room for improvement. At California’s Kirkwood, sign up for an Expedition Kirkwood tour and get pointers from a mountain professional as you’re guided through Avalanche and Thunder Bowl—two hike-in zones with everything from drops and chutes to wide-open bowls (from $300). Looking to go bigger in the terrain park?

Colorado’s Copper Mountain offers indoor and on-mountain lessons through Woodward at Copper, which put $500,000 into a renovation of its trampoline, foam pit, and ramp facility this summer (from $199). At California’s Sierra-at-Tahoe, your instructor will film your run with Zeal’s new HD-camera goggles and then analyze your form during a private three-plus-hour ski lesson (from $280).
