Ski lessons can be hit and miss at some resorts, but at Telluride Ski School all the instructors are trained every year on the technique they want everyone to teach. Classes are organized by ability and after a quick ski evaluation (observed by multiple instructors) classes are adjusted to make sure everyone gets the most out of their lesson. My... More

I have had ski lessons from Whistler to Utah to Montana to Colorado. I am a very mental skier and was ready to quit trying to ski. After lessons with Spike and Deb I am ready to continuing skiing! I had reached a plateau and was pushed beyond what I could do with the skills I had in the past.... More

Just completed 3 days of Never Ever Adult beginner lessons and had the same instructor for the entirety. Lisa is very personable, friendly,patient, explains & demonstrates very well. The list goes on and on. She embodies all the qualities an instructor should possess. I will return to Telluride to take more lessons from Lisa and would highly recommend her to... More

What an awesome program. Our whole family took lessons. My 7 year old loved the lessons so much that he wanted to ski with them everyday. My husband and I took the group lessons. It's an awesome program. Lessons are from 11 to 3:45. You have lunch with your instructor and ski group (cost not included) in the middle of... More

WOW, what an amazing trip we had. We took our 6 kids with us this time (my husband and I ski Telluride every year alone), and we put 4 in ski school for 4 days, and 2 in the "never ever" lessons for snow-boarding for 4 days. The four youngest did not want to leave!! They were on BLUES as... More

Telluride is an amazing ski resort period. The telluride ski school is over the top with outstanding caring polite knowledgable instructors that are really into ski instruction. I signed up for the max four lesson with another girl. Our instructor spike was remarkable. He watched us ski down the bunny hill figured out what we needed to learn and made... More

What an amazing experience it has been to have my kids participate in the Telluride D squad this year. The instructors are an amazing group of people and the management staff (Frank Martinez and Kelly Webb) are true professionals who put your children's needs first. I would totally recommend this group to teach your kids a love for the sport... More

No matter what level skier you are, if you have not been to tell Telluride, consider arranging lessons. We skied a couple of days with an awesome Australian instructor, Peter Steiner. He helped mom (me) improve her cruising skills and rocked the double black diamonds with my intrepid 18 year old son. If you plan ahead, they have packages that... More

Michael gave my husband and I one of the most helpful private ski lessons we've had in 3 seasons of skiing. The results were immediate and by the end of the 4 days of skiing we were up on the blues and comfortably taking advantage of See Forever run. In addition, our ski valet never showed up our first evening... More

Linda Peterson offered a complimentary one hour lesson to me as a guest at the Madeline resort. I have not skied for 13 years. She was great in every respect so I booked a half day private lesson. Pricey but she was great in every respect. We had a plan of what to accomplish and did it all..with intelligent, practical,... More
