Ask for Dave Johnson as your instructor. Has been there 7 years and really does a good job with students.

Our kids, ages 9 and 7, were beginner skiers but needed a lesson while skiing out west. The school was a great experience. Friendly and knowledgeable instructors. They learned a lot in one day and seemed to really enjoy it.

All the kids that were with our group took lessons for skiing and snowboarding. They all loved it and could ski/snowboard after just one day lesson. Ages ranged from 3 years old to 14 years old.

I arranged ski lessons for my children (12 and 14) for the eight time. There is an instructor, Ivan Karachovanov, who has taught them for four years. He is excellent!! This year they reached double diamond level. Ivan is kind, patient, upbeat and energetic. With his guidance they excelled. We already scheduled for next December.

My wife suffered a brain tumor whose removal left her totally deaf in her right ear and with a serious balance issue. Since she is deaf on one side, it is close to impossible for her to determine exactly where sounds come from. When she skis, and turns to find the source of the sounds around her, her balance issue... More

I had only tried skiing one time before, so I was really worried about getting hurt. I decided to take a half day all ladies ski class and it was great! For $165 it includes a lift pass for the day. By the end of the day I was confident skiing and most importantly, was able to ski with the... More

My instructor, Jill, was fantastic. She knew what she was doing and gave great feedback. Within the first hour, I was more comfortable and skiing better. I was not thrilled with the long check-in process at the office (over half an hour) but expected it since we were at the resort over a holiday. The school needs to rethink the... More

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
