Granddaughter's first ski lesson. The process from checking in my granddaughter to checking her out was professional, courteous. Had no qualms about leaving her with a very attentive and competent staff. She enjoyed it very much. We (family) did observe the instruction and they are really good at helping each youngster. We will be back.

The instructors are very personable and we have been happy with most of them technically, but despite the high premium price for private lessons, there seems to be a retention issue and we have had a hard time recently getting the same instructor year over year. Once you get to a certain point, it's just reps and there isn't a... More

My 12yo son took snowboarding lessons from Stephan and Margaret. Friendly, prompt, great communication. I felt very comfortable sending my son for 9a-3:30p lessons. It is expensive, but excellent. You really get what you pay for with this company. Highly recommend. Would definitely use again.

when I was younger my family and I went to Beaver Creek for the first of many visits. The ski school program is most likely top in the country. This ski resort is very family oriented, yet still gives you challenges with glade skiing and mogul runs. Very good over all.

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
