my instructor was so mean and every time she gave instructions and I said ok she yelled at me and told me not to say ok. The rest was very difficult How do you communicate when you can't say ok. A waste of time and money. Never use beaver creek school again. Couldn't wait for it to end and didn't... More

My husband and daughter both took lessons here last week. My daughter's instructor was Mother T and she was so great. She had so much knowledge and a great teaching style, my daughter came away with a very positive experience. My husband took a group snowboard lesson and also enjoyed it a lot. They are so well staffed and virtually... More

I really wish tripadvisor has ratings levels which beyond "Excellent", cause I cannot say enough good things about this school! Jock (hopefully I spelled the nick name correct) was our coach, he is such a funny, informative, nice, sometimes tough, wonderful guy! We have 4 people in our group, at first we were just beginners who merely could finish the... More

This ski school insisted that my niece be in a slower level than her skill level. Then in the end, she broke her leg in the ultra slow class. Skiing slower than your ability is dangerous just as skiing faster than your ability can be. These people seem to lack the experience and expertise that I would expect.

With over 1100 instructors, it is very clear why this place is the best in the world. The facility was well laid out, easy to find everything, many staff nearby for questions etc. The staff were very accommodating and welcoming. Such a wonderful experience. Our instructor, Bill Davis was fantastic. We had a bit of a challenging group to begin... More

the facilities, instructors, programs, and packages are top notch. All three grandsons started at age three. They loved ski school. I'm bringing them back again this year for the "six pack of lessons"

My kids (now 13 & 17) have taken various ski and snowboard lessons over the years, and whether group or private, we have always been amazed with the progress each day! One tip is to book the U4 lesson, which is more than regular group lesson, but less than a private. If less than four kids show up, you really... More

I went to Vail with my family, my husband and my 3 kids, Monica 9, Jose 6 and Esteban 5. We went to Golden Peak Ski School in Vail instead of the Lionshead Ski School. I just want to say that the service in ski school was amazing. My kids are native spanish speakers, although they know english, but they... More

The classes are good. But come on a private for 750, a group for 175. They only pay the instructor 60 bucks. That is totally out of whack
