Shaggy was an awesome snowboard instructor. He handles all kinds of kids in his group lessons. Seamless registration process....breezed through equipment rental. Great experience. I highly recommend.

We had 3 days each, a first timer snowboard and level 7 skier. The first timer had a blast and was doing very well by the 3rd day. For myself, it seemed that they were looking to make level 5-6 feel good and allow them...More

If ski school means trailing after a French instructor with minimal English and a class of 8-12, then Vail Ski School will be like a breath of fresh air. Small groups, excellent technical tuition, lift priority (means a lot at weekends!) and tuition for advanced...More

I'm a new skier, and can only compare to the lessons I took in Steamboat. In comparison, Beaver Creek was much more expensive, and the instructor wasn't near as good. For starters, they put me in too high a level group. I told them I...More

Ian Bruce is a fantastic ski instructor. His manner is kind and engaged, his approach is easy to grasp and most importantly, our 12 year old had a breakthrough in his skiing.
