Ian Bruce is a fantastic ski instructor. His manner is kind and engaged, his approach is easy to grasp and most importantly, our 12 year old had a breakthrough in his skiing.

I'm a new skier, and can only compare to the lessons I took in Steamboat. In comparison, Beaver Creek was much more expensive, and the instructor wasn't near as good. For starters, they put me in too high a level group. I told them I thought it was too high for me, but they insisted I stay in the group... More

We enrolled our son in ski school for two days. He loved the small group, ski lessons, and how much he advanced; he asked to stay for a 3rd day. His instructor knew how to make it fun for the young group, keep it safe, advance their skills, and have them begging for more! I would definitely recommend ski school,... More

My 7 year old daughter was in a group lesson Dec 2016 practicing skidding and stopping up on the mountain. She got trampled by another instructor leading a long line of "singing teenagers". His ski got under her jacket, scraped her back, and caused a big abrasion. He did not stop to help her, and in addition, the ski school... More

We probably just had a sub par instructor, but even though this was a first time adult snowboarder class, I was clubbed with more experienced snowboarders, which was not fair for anyone, plus we had to go down a steeper hill than is reasonable for a first timer, so it was just really scary and overwhelming. There was zero time... More

Impressive group of instructors who do care for your kids and got my little guy riding blacks and trees. They are patient and knowledgeable. My lil guy always was happy to leave us and run off with his teachers.

Michael Callejo did such a wonderful job. Highly recommend requesting him to teach your children ages 7 to 14. He is know as the gentle giant and works well with kids.

I have never skied in my life and was extremely nervous. My instructor Randy was excellent, he gave each of us in the class individual attention and made sure we were all comfortable before moving us to the next level. Also the ladies working in the Ski School office (Cindy & Michelle) are wonderful they helped me get into the... More

I have put many children and now adults into this ski school. Sure they complain .... my legs hurt. My feet are sore. Well that's skiing. But they never ever complain about the Instructors or their treatment. If you are thinking about ski school, come here. We did, over and over again.

Our family of 4 Floridians (ranging from 14 to 40) took the full day beginner adult group ski lessons and the half-day first-timer snowboard lessons during the Winter Storm Selene. It was a bit challenging with so much snow (although it made for softer falls), but it was beautiful and enjoyable. Our ski instructor, Jim, was so helpful and patient.... More
