Our family visited Telluride for a Spring Break ski trip this year & plan to return. We each ski at different levels, and my pre-teen was adamant she didn't want to be in the "kiddie classes." My teenage son insisted he already knew how to "pizza & french fry" & didn't want to "waste time" in a class. It was a new resort for us, and "different snow" than the NE & Appalachian slopes, so I insisted on ski school. We are all glad we did.
The instructors were careful to put us in the correct level class - both adult, teenager & pre-teen. First time skiers aren't grouped with those looking to advance in skill - so no one is embarrassed and more advanced skiers aren't waiting on the rest of the class. My pre-teen was thrilled she was with other 10-12 year olds. We each received individual attention & instruction, even in a small group setting. The instructors also told us about area history & attractions.
Telluride also has an Adaptive Ski School for children & adults with challenges/disabilities. A friend's son with ASD spoke very highly of the program.
We hope to be back next season!
