Snowbasin kid's lessons??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

My son and I will be at Snowbasin this week and I'd like to get him lessons while we're there. He's 6 years old and everything he's learned so far is from me but Lord knows I have my limits on teaching him to ski and a good instructor could really help bring him along. I've had him on skis since he was three and he loves it and we have a great time but I'm not knowledgable enough to take him too much farther in his skiing. Anyone have any experience with their ski school there?

Jim Forster (4ster on this board) is the assistant director of the ski school and an excellent coach/instructor.  He may not be the right guy for such a youngster, but he will either be said person or hook you up with the best choice.  Send him a PM.

I know they have a really good ski school there--I am actually taking my 7YO daughter up there next week! We are also going to ski at Powder Mountain as I feel the terrain is a little more suited to her level there. That being said, we will have her take one lesson at Snowbasin. They have the funnest little kids terrain park off their beginner lift there. Not sure where else they'll take her as she's far exceeded the slope of that beginner run. I do like that they offer 2 or 4 hour lesson increments. Full day can be a bit much for a little one!

Yep, I've been in contact with him already and met him in January while I was up there (we are moving there--yahoo!) Anyway, agreed, GREAT guy! What a fantastic video, too!

 

ETA your 7YO skis a wee bit better than mine!
