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.

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.
