Intermediate Lessons in Utah

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi all, 

 

I'm going to be out in Utah for the month of January and am looking at taking a couple lessons (probably group given my budget). I'm looking for suggestions of where to go and maybe even who might be a good instructor to try to go with. I've skied a few of the places in Utah before but I'm really an intermediate skier from the midwest looking to become more comfortable on all runs on the bigger mountains. 

 

Thanks in advance!

Dt,

 

Welcome to Epic! For a group lesson you won't get to choose your instructor. The big boys all run top notch schools, but for a group lesson your odds of getting a great coach are probably going to be the same at the smaller locales (e.g. Brighton/Solitude/Snowbasin/Powder). If you can't find a great deal at a specific resort, my recommendation would be Canyons or Park City based on the info you have presented. The SLC locals here at Epic will probably have more info once they find this thread.

Are you staying in SLC?  If you are going to have a car, take a look at the lesson prices at Snowbasin.  Brighton and Solitude also are less pricy than the other places.

 

The afternoon Adult Workshop at Alta is a good way to explore off-piste with an instructor and a small group.  Was something like $65 for 2.5 hours a few years ago.  Not really a lesson.  More of a guided tour with a few tips.  They split into three groups by ability.  The experts just go ski.  The middle group may go on the High T.  The last group does stuff closer to groomers.
