We are preliminarily planning a ski vacation for spring break next year. We have heard excellent thing about Deer Valley. We are looking at the Black Diamond Lodge, since it seems to be the most convenient of all the places to the bunny hill (Wide West). This forum seems to strongly recommend these units.
It will be me, my wife, and our 4 kids. My wife and I are adavanced beginners. We have skiied 10 days in our lives. We can ski comfortably on all greens and some blues.
Our kids have never skiied before. They will be 11, 7, 6, and 4 (almost 5). We plan on putting them in private lessons. We plan on hiring 2 instructor for 4 kids. My wife feels like they will have more fun learning together with their siblings. We are not sure if we want all day lessons or just AM lessons? We think they might be worn out after an AM of lessons?
If some of them want to ski with me in the afternoon, what greens runs would you recommend. I have read that Ontario is the easiest green run after Wide West? I read that one should wait to take Bandana (steep parts) or Success (steep ending) until they are more advanced?
