Summit offers really nice group lessons. Conny Doppler was such a good teacher with a lot of patience and very good teaching skills. I will definitely follow some lessons again next year! Thank you for this great experience!

Do you want one instructor for the family? Or does everyone ski at very different levels?? I would suggest emailing them ( website lists prices) they are always very quick to respond.
