Going to Telluride in March- Ski school question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Deviating from the family trip of the past 3 years of going to Steamboat, we are going to T-ride to switch things up. Pretty stoked. I figured that if there was ever a year to go, this might be as good as any, even knowing that Tony's findings re: El Niño mean it's no slam dunk the snow will be Epic.

With a kid now in real school we are forced into the spring break season, so I've had to drain my AA milestone account and even had to buy another $800 in Miles to get all 3 of us there. I've actually been back in 1999, and really want my wife to see how spectacular the place is.

Anyway , the kid will be in ski school, and my wife likes to take lessons so I started looking at what they offered. I've actually had a really good time taking small group lessons in SB, mainly because the instructor was just a fun guy. We had so much fun he told me to come ski with them again the next day even though I wasn't paying for it...(wife was already signed up)

The class I'm looking out appears to be a really killer deal, and I'd like to know if anyone has done it before.
It's called "Mountain Adventure". It's a group lesson that lasts from 11:15 to 3:45.
If you sign up for three days, it's $470 for lesson, full day lift tickets and rentals. I don't rent but my wife does. It's around $405 for lesson and lifts.
Unless I'm missing something that seems like an incredible deal.
Anyone here done this particular lesson?

Sorry, not about lessons, just an f.y.I. on lodging.  I got an email from Mountain Lodge Telluride today.  They are offering the 4th night free again.  This time they are including a $75 credit for use in The View Bar and Grill.  Just thought I would share that though I suspect you already have lodging.

Thanks I already have a place booked. Literally on top of,the Chondola at the bottom. I think It's going to work well for us.

No.
Staying at bottom of the chondola in the meadows, not the gondola in town. Columbia was almost booked full tho as we did look there.

Last season I did the Mountain Adventure package.  It's a great bargain for a sort-of  "all day " lesson.     Different levels are offered and you will be placed where you belong, or where you want/think you belong...up to you.

Not a lot of snow last year, but enough to discover new areas with an instructor who knows the mountain well.   Lesson starts late in the morning, which is kind of nice if you're on a real vacation.   You eat lunch with the group somewhere on the slopes, so bring your wallet!

I do the MA class- since I ski solo.. its a guaranteed good time with a group of people at same level. The 3 day package is a heck of a deal..  I am trying to decided weather to head there at spring break in March with the kids again.. ( they really loved the ski school - think my kids made up for the cost by consuming more than their share of food at lunch)- 

 

You can choose the level you like to ski with, and the group kinda votes on what runs to take..
