"I took a 3 hour snowboard class with Tucker, he was great. I definitely felt I got my money's worth."
" I came out of the lesson feeling accomplished & more confident."
"He had a wonderful day and he is ready to go again!"

He knows the mountain and can adapt to how you’re are learning. He identified I had the basics down and got me in a direction to excel me on the greens. The entire staff as a whole is exceptional and friendly.

I was a first time skier a couple weeks ago. I decided to take an adult ski lesson with Butter. He was fantastic. I came in timid and he was so encouraging & an obviously well seasoned instructor... Butter made it easy to start a new sport. Definitely recommend!

Jordan Foster was my 5 year old nephews ski instructor for the day! It was his first time on skis and his first trip to the snow. He was very nervous and it took a lot of convincing that morning. Within minutes, of meeting Jordan he was at ease! ... Thank you so much for a perfect day, Jordan!
