Take Your Skiing to the Next Level by Learning from Olympic Ski Coaches
You’ll be taught by Olympic coaches using the same techniques they use to train Olympic athletes to win medals.
Our coaches take full advantage of the different terrain to help you experience and realize a whole new way of skiing mountains.
Our guest to coach ratio averages to 5:1 ensuring you lots of immediate feedback, focus and personal attention.
No matter what your ski level is, you’ll come out a more confident, competent, and capable skier.
And you won’t just learn – you’ll have more fun than you thought possible on two skis.
The Right Coach Makes a Huge Difference
There’s a world of difference between the typical mountain resort ski instructor and an Olympic ski coach.
Very few golf pros, club-level tennis instructors or ski instructors have a deep understanding of sports psychology, kinesiology or biomechanics. Consequently, although they mean well, many times they teach in a way that hurts their students.
It’s common for them to try to “justify” their hourly rate by constantly giving instructions – which only confuses and overwhelms their students.
Olympic and pro-level coaches understand that students and athletes of every level respond better to a teaching tempo that allows them to mentally relax and achieve a peak state of mind.
They understand that the words they use when explaining a concept to their students have the power to create positive or negative mental pictures. So every word out of their mouths is designed to elicit a specific outcome.
Plus, their knowledge of biomechanics and kinesiology allows then to understand how a change in foot position will create a chain reaction impacting the ankle, the knee, the hips and ultimately what the body does. So they teach in a simpler way that results in faster progress.
Slow is fast and fast is slow.

Stay in a Beautiful
We limit the size of our groups to 8 to 20 people – big enough so there’s plenty of interaction and small enough so everyone can get to know each other.
Our guests are a very selective group – people with high standards, people who like to play as hard as they work. Who knows? You just might meet your next best friend or your next business partner.
You’ll stay in a beautiful mountain lodge minutes away from town.
The only rules are to relax and have fun. Casual is the name of the game. Wear your favorite pair of jeans and your most comfortable t-shirt. If you feel more comfortable dressing up, go for it.
We just want you to enjoy yourself as you create unforgettable memories.
