I decided to take a lesson at the beginning of my vacation just to get a acquainted with the resort. My instructor was so knowledgeable and was able to give me some tips that really helped me feel comfortable on challenging terrain. I ended up to taking another lesson with her the next day because I was having so much fun!
My husband and I don’t know much about skiing so when our 9 year old son said he wanted to try we were a little nervous. We contacted the snow sports school located at that mountain near us and booked him a 1 hour private lesson. On the day of our reservation, Dylan was a ball of nerves. They paired him up with Alyssa, a certified instructor who (we were told) had a great reputation with kids. She was absolutely amazing! She made Dylan feel comfortable as soon as she stared to talk. After 2 trips down the hill, he told us we could wait inside and he wanted to ski with Alyssa the rest of the day! Her experience and patience was priceless.
I had two lessons over three days and made excellent progress. The instructors were enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable and the groups were small so I felt comfortable really quick. For 1st timers and beyond, I would recommend a group or private lesson. Totally worth every cent!
