Ski School or Not

Only you can make that choice

  • But is your a novice you should really invest. A day or two in CO in a group, semi-private, or private lesson, is better than weeks of friends teaching you bad habits. Unless, of course, they are a certified instructor like me :)
  • It should be a no-brainer to put kids in lessons. It's a decent deal and lunch and lift tix are usually included.
  • All instruction goes officially through the mountain, there isn't any gray market or side teaching. Though, generous friends or their kids might be happy to give a few pointers.
  • It can be blood expensive for privates, but up to 6 people can share.  For kids there are some semi-private options.
