I have put many children and now adults into this ski school. Sure they complain .... my legs hurt. My feet are sore. Well that's skiing. But they never ever complain about the Instructors or their treatment. If you are thinking about ski school, come here. We did, over and over again.

Our family of 4 Floridians (ranging from 14 to 40) took the full day beginner adult group ski lessons and the half-day first-timer snowboard lessons during the Winter Storm Selene. It was a bit challenging with so much snow (although it made for softer falls), but it was beautiful and enjoyable. Our ski instructor, Jim, was so helpful and patient.... More

After just three days of snowboard school, my son was tackling the blue slopes with no problems at all. Howie is a wonderful instructor!

Private lessons have gone sky-high but the max 3 is a good deal - 3 people total and if only you show up, you will have your own instructor. If you can pay for a private, ask for Barb Krichbaum - she has been around 30 plus years and she can get beginners and experts onto skis for a very... More

I cannot recommend the ski school at Beaver Creek highly enough. This was our 3rd annual trip with friends and we have had the best time again. Our Daughters (aged 10 and 12) were in ski school for 3 days and, although they had 3 different instructors) had a blast. The groups are small and the instructors interact with the... More

Have had lesson here in the past and this year opted for a one day class with a max of 3 skiers. Cost over $300 for the day (each) 10.00 to 15.30 and I don't think that represented good value for money. Shame as it was the quality of the ski school that made us return here for 7 consecutive...

I thought it was a good school. I spent 3 days learning here. The only thing is that it's going rather slow: because even though there are 9 levels of skiing abilities and they separate them one by one and there are plenty of instructors, they don't really know what people are capable of until they start skiing so there...

I had a wonderful day on the slopes thanks to Beaver Creek Ski School. If you can, I'd highly recommend registering online before your trip. I literally walked in to the check-in desk and had a packet waiting for me with my lift pass and registration. You can register same day, but it's easier to do all the registration information...

We adored our instructor Petra. She is a top notch instructor with master skills. Her patience and her knowledge of the mountain really took us to the next level in skiing. Having such a great instructor made our skiing experience so memorable because we felt so safe and confident that we were in good hands. I would highly recommend this... More

It was a little chaotic trying to figure out how to and where the school was, but they had impeccable service.. 5 people looking to help you at any given time. My daughter got much better on her skii's after 2 lessons and we skii'd for 3 days after that... Thanks to the instructors my 6 year old loved.
