I'm new here so I don't know how much this has been covered before. Lessons here in the East run about forty to fifty dollars per hour, add in a tip and you are up to seventy. When I go out west I can take an all day lesson for about eighty five. Why is this? I do not feel that very much can be accomplished in one hour, three runs are about the norm. I never got much out of these lessons. On the other hand, an all day lesson is great. My wife and I plus a friend took one at Jackson Hole and it transformed the way I ski the bumps. The big problem is that I want to get better on ice moguls but they don't exist out west (not when I have been there anyway}. I'm the only one who wants to take lessons when we travel, so this is a problem too. I do not see why most eastern resorts can't do the same as the western ones. I ski a lot in the catskills and vermont, so my experience is limited to these areas.
