How many times in life do goods and services exceed your expectations? This is one experience that blew us away. ProPowderGuides not only delivered on exactly what was advertised, but went well beyond the experience described on the website.

Working with David was a absolute pleasure. We had a group of 6 kids that ranged from 5 -11 and wanted them to experience Squaw together. In our initial call David spent time explaining the dynamics of instructions with such a diverse group and wanted information on each child. We worked out a plan and it was executed beautifully. The kids had an amazing time and loved working with Dave. Each day we had pictures and videos emailed to us updating our kids progress. Truly above and beyond our expectations.

We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend using ProPowderGuides on your next ski adventure!!

What a great experience! Better than advertised - Talk about exceeding expectations.
The personal attention over multiple days was simply ridiculous. Kids bonded very quickly with the instructor and they really enjoyed spending time with him while "accidentally" learning. Can't say enough about ProPowderGuides!

Three friends and I reserved Propowderguides for private lessons while at Lake Tahoe over the Christmas break. We skied Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Diamond Peak and Heavenly with the same instructor every day at each resort allowing us to build on what we learned, rather than starting fresh each day with a new instructor. Dave's instruction was concise and he was very patient as we challenged ourselves (to things we wouldn't have dared alone) including, some steep expert runs, trees and powder.

In my experience, he was much more comprehensive than resort lessons I'd taken in the past and he shot outstanding photos and video that we used as a learning tool each night. That really helped us understand what we needed to adjust to refine our technique.

We highly recommend Propowderguides!
