I was skeptical about paying the $80 for a 1 hour lesson for my 5 year old boy. I wasn't sure if it was worth the investment. Turns out its the best money I have spent in a long time!
My son had minimal experience with skiing- only what my wife had been able to teach on one previous outing last year. So really and truly, a beginner who could barely stand on skis. I am a snowboarder and have no idea how to ski, let alone teach somebody else.
Well, this great instructor (Roger) had him up to the top of the mountain in a half hour, skiing independently after the next run and by the end of the session, he was able to connect turns and come to a complete stop!
I can now enjoy skiing with my kid for the rest of the winter and take him down any intermediate trail in the northeast!
Can't say enough great things about this ski school and how they made our family's whole season!
