I had not skied since college and was not very good then. My girlfriend was a life long skier who had lived on the slopes as a child but had not skied for about 10 years and had only skied once with the new shaped skis and had not liked them. So we both had different reasons to want to... More

We had a private lesson for 4 adults w Heidi and could not be more pleased! She was informative, encouraging, and energetic. Our children had a private lesson and were not too impressed. We then did a group lesson for them, again not good. We later allowed them to ski w us and they enjoyed that much better. It seemed... More

the slopes and environment at Telluride are the best, but our kids experience in ski school was just satisfactory. no real enthusiasm on the part of the instructors to make our kids learn to ski better; more of a baby sitting service than some of the other ski schools we have used.

This is the second year we enrolled my son (5) in ski school and I cannot say enough wonderful things. Unlike other ski schools they spend a lot of time working with the kids on the technical components of skiing- how to stop, transition to parallel form, etc, All while having fun. Last year they had my son on lift... More

First time adult 40 year old skier(s) with friend who was also over 40. I was very nervous about coming on trip in the first place since I had never skied before. Moreover, I was completely unsure if people of color would be welcomed but rest assured this was only a fear and definitely not a reality; everyone was super... More

At first I was hesitant if my 3 year old would be able to handle an entire day of skiing (9 to 3) but I am glad I signed him up. They were very attentive, caring and friendly. They do take breaks for snacks, activities and lunch. I was able to watch the class and the instructors were amazing. My... More

My wife and I just completed three days of lessons as part of the Never Ever ski lesson package. We cannot say enough great things about Telluride Ski School and the staff and instructors. We progressed rapidly thanks to the extremely knowledgeable, friendly and patient instruction of Mary Pat and Kevin. They did a fantastic job, and our last day... More

Our children were in the ski school (second year) and for them, there was so much terrain to ski and improve their skills on the long green and double green runs for play and practice. They were in love with blue Enchanted Forest slope that features light modules for jumping and trough the woods skiing experience. Our daughter 10 year... More

Very pleased with the one day lesson that I took. They were very accommodating, as I had severe altitude sickness and couldn't perform as much. They allowed me to take the lesson the next day. My instructor was patient and kind. The ski resort is wonderfully ran, and empty the time I went, which was great! I loved the whole... More

Ski lessons can be hit and miss at some resorts, but at Telluride Ski School all the instructors are trained every year on the technique they want everyone to teach. Classes are organized by ability and after a quick ski evaluation (observed by multiple instructors) classes are adjusted to make sure everyone gets the most out of their lesson. My... More
