We are traveling to Beaver Creek in Jan with 3 children (aged 12, 10 and 7 yrs) for 8 nights. They have skied once before ( in Australia) and are confident on green runs and were starting to try easy blues. I' m trying to decide whether to put them in group ski school for 3-4 days( $545 day for all 3) or give them 2 days of private instruction grouped together ($745 day). I have read some rather negative reviews of the group lessons and wonder whether a couple of solid days of private instruction might get them to a level where they can ski with us (moderate intermediates) later in the week?? Thanks for your help.
