We are a large group that came for a business related meeting. All were experienced skiers with lots of ski school experience in other resorts. We found the ski school poorly run, with very little thought given to the best interests of the student. Lots of waiting around, sub par instruction, and even a rude instructor. One member reported a... More

I'm an adult first-time skier. I signed up for the Never Ever Beginner Ski Class, and I'm so glad I did. My instructors were Phil and Shaun, and they were really helpful, supportive and encouraging. Shaun was particularly helpful to my friend who was struggling with the basics and needed extra attention. They made great use of the short class,... More

Booked a private lesson for our family. Woodfin was our instructor. Very happy how he accessed everyone, listened to our concerns ( haven't skied in 10 years, broken leg last time) and worked with all of our ski levels. Gave us confidence that we could ski together the rest of our vacation. 15year old was starting over learning, 19 yr... More

1/4/17 My husband got me a group ski lesson for Christmas. I've tried snowboarding before and didn't like it so I figured I would give skiing a try. My lesson was from 11-3:45pm and we met outside of the ticket area. When I arrived I told my instructor that I think my boots were too tight and we told me... More

The classes are very well explained and the slopes are very easy. Separate Classes for children and adults . If you are a first timer, don't be afraid to try this. . Kids have their own school so parents and their kids cannot learn together unless you book a private lesson.

My kids(age 15 and 12) had two days of private lessons with Joanne, and they and I could not have been more pleased. She is very sweet and pleasant, and they absolutely loved her. In general at ski resorts we have found that the private lessons are more than worth the cost vs the group school lessons. Here was definitely... More

It's been over 20 years since I skied and it was my first time skiing out West so I really wanted to take a lesson. I thought it might be good to brush up on the basic skills and make sure I was building up on proper technique so I decided to go with the "Never Ever" group lesson. The... More

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.
