“Great instructors”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

I have taken a few sessions from different instructors and each have been extremely helpful, friendly and patient. I appreciate their hard work. I don't have a comparison in terms of price, but I think it was reasonable for what you get. Before booking a package, be sure to check what comes with each one to ensure you do not unnecessarily spend money on features that may be included in the ski school package. Again, excellent instructors and easy booking. I will definitely take from them again. I enjoyed my ski school experience immensely. Also, I can ski now!!!

“They charge you for lift tickets even if you already have them”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

The ski school experience has a basic pricing flaw in that they "sell" you lift tickets even if you already purchased them through their main site.

Given it is the same operation, it is most unfortunate that Telluride ticket sales do not mention anywhere that you have to buy lift tickets for the ski school even if you already bought them separately or have season passes. Oh - and no refunds of course.

Given the arrogance of Telluride customer service there is no recourse on this one.

“Openning Day”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Loved the fact that the Ski school was open on Donation day, since we only had two days to ski over Thanksgiving this made a world of difference.

Would like to thank EVERYONE there, they did a great job. In particular Janet was awesome teacher with our daughter Jadyn age 6. Mommy also had the best instructor, Bill Davis ! Highly recommend both.

“Excellent Instructors”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

On our first visit to Telluride we booked a private ski lesson for our family. The instructor was so great and worked with each of us according to our skill level. Well worth the money!!

“Private Ski Instructor - Mary Pat”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

If you are planning to ski this winter in Telluride ask for Mary Pat who is a private ski instructor. Her name comes up in our household even to this day. "What would Mary Pat tell you to do?" We hired her for our children ages 8 & 9 who have been in ski school every year since they were 4. They learned more with her than all of their ski schools put together. We were completely amazed! They were going down blues confidentally, doing jumps & having a blast! We ended up using her the full 4 days of skiing and shared her with another family that was skiing with us. She was completely flexible with what ever arrangement we made. Mary Pat spent most of her time with the kids because that was our original intention with her but also took us out as a family to ski together, one time she took the guys out who are more advanced to hit the moguls and blacks, and another occasion took the moms out and really helped to refine our skills. We now can ski confidentally as a family together and hit some of the more challenging slopes as a family. She is fantastic with the kids, an overall great person who's company we really enjoyed. We will be using her again.
