“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

2 boys - 11 year old boarder
8 year old skier

Both only had a couple of hours lessons at Hemel Hempstead before we went. They were both up to Level 3 in Whistler Blackcomb levels (which cover loads) after 3 days. Instructors were from around the world, boys had some from Mexico, and England (we booked 3 days so were classed as daily lessons). The boys loved them all and were going from the top of the Whistler Gondola to the Village on their 2nd day. I thought the lessons from 8.30 - 3.30 would be too long but when we collected them they wanted to go up with us for more. The Flaik trackers they wear allow you to see where they've been each day, but it needs flashplayer so we haven't checked that out yet and are still to do that at home on the PC. Would definitely recommend to everyone. I booked through Whistler Blackcomb after checking out their website and calling the free phone number - the staff there were great and helped me book not only lessons, but equipment hire, and airport transfers. Well done everyone, boys would like to thank Giovanni, Will, Rory and Adam.

“Positive & Negative”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

My youngest daughter (age 6) had a wonderful experience. There were only 3 kids total in her class and she had a super great instructor.

My oldest daughter (age 9) had an average experience. There were way too many children in her class (9-10 kids) - and even though they had 2 instructors, they really should have divided up the class.

“First season skiing, and she's a confident Blue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Our daughter had been on skis only five days when she met her instructor, Gregor. She was at first disappointed at being "dumped" in ski school so dad could ski the more challenging runs, but her instructor,Gregor quickly turned it around, and she had the time of her life! We wanted her to get a solid foundation from a great instructor, so she could enjoy skiing for life, and that's exactly what we got. It's a blast coming home and sharing her ski days online with her classmates on flaik.com. Thanks for a fabulous family experience!!

“Fun, Fun, Fun - Babysitting Included”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Adventure camps and ski lessons for two children that were a hit. The kids loved their instructors, the skiing and even the food during the day. The youngest (5 years old) was giddy being left every morning and loved his day. His skiing improved by leaps and bounds during the week. The oldest (12) was thrilled with the teaching and touring around the mountain. Truly a great time for both the kids - and a better time for the adults to be able to ski unencumbered!

“wonderful instructor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Wonderful and capable instructor(Kai from Netherlands).

Be careful of some other kids in the group. A girl tried to scratch my son's face and left some superficial scratch right under his right eye. My son can turn blind from an eye injury!
