for example at snowbird you can ski for 56 and take a lesson for around 60-80 buccks
i know skiing costs a lot of money, but these prices are out of mind
I wait long enough for others to counter the OP, basically shoot him to pieces! ;-)
If I were to spring for an hour of PRIVATE lesson, I would only do so with a KNOWN instructor to get my money's worth. If I'm taking my chances with an unknown instructor, I'd rather do that on a group lesson rate.
As for Snowbird/Alta being less expensive than JH, we all know that. My home mountain cost only $25-35 for lift ticket. What's the point?
YES, the full price at JH are expensive. But then, JH isn't known for being inexpensive even within the expensive sport of skiing! So I don't find the listed price out of line.
As many others who somehow managed to ski there without robbing a bank (but wait, I DID rob a bank, but that's a seperate issue), I did it by looking for deals. There were soooo many deals it seems only the very rich and the very ... (fill in the blank) pay full prices!
I WOULD continue to recommend JH to others. I would also point out it's not cheap. So some smart deal searching will be very worthwhile.
