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.
