These experienced instructors can teach you to ski in just three sessions and the rates are incredibly reasonable—even more affordable if you come as a group of 10 or more—so grab your friends or family. These folks literally wrote the guidelines for the Special Oympics...More

Worth the price! My two boys learned to snowboard and had a blast. Instructors were super nice and helpful. Will do it again for skiing next time. All equipment was included and the price was moderate . Loved it!

Bringing my 12 year old son skiing for the fist time. Easy class registration. Small group size. Friendly, knowledgeable instructor. Well worth the $20!! Class started a little late but other than that, no complaints!

Skip the long lines at the resorts and rent your skis here. Professional staff, good advice (they called the resort for conditions for us) long hours and very new equipment. As a bonus you'll save a few dollars.
