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.

We rode the shuttle over to the main square where we walked a little to the school. The area where the kids were skiing was just outside the school on a small slope just for them. They loved it and the instructors were great.
