Professional Ski and Snowboard Instructor

I have taught countless amounts of people to ski and snowboard over the years. I have over 30 years experience skiing and more that 20 years snowboarding. There is no one out there more passionate about teaching the sport and I am CPR certified.

For a long time there has been only one entity teaching lessons and the mountains prices have skyrocketed while the quality of instruction has fallen. I am the most professional instructor with the highest quality lesson at a fraction of the price. I teach all ages and ability levels from the first time beginner to doing tricks in the park.

Where you'll be

The parking lot right off Switzerland Drive. Make sure to get there early as it fills up fast. The mountain is only a short walk from here.

My daughter and I went for her first time snowboarding on the mountain and it was everything I was hoping for! She is only 3years old and has a physical disability which makes it hard for me as an intermediate snowboarder to take her with me alone down the mountain. Thanks to Kyle my daughter is now in love with snowboarding which was all I wanted! We all got to ride down together safely and she even got to ride the chairlift and went down the mountain fast while he held her up... We didn’t expect her to make it more than an hour or so but I had to convince her to be done and not to go another run, even after she had a fall that upset her. She was so happy and comfortable with her instructor and we had a great time with him. The experience was truly incredible and hearing my daughter talk about it non-stop since brings me so much joy. Can’t wait to shred with her 🥲

Great experience with our instructors. My 4 kids first time putting on skis became a super memorable experience and they were flying down the hill in no time. They can’t wait to go back and do it again and the instructors were friendly, knowledgable, patient, and made it fun for the kids.

Christian was super responsive to what I was looking to accomplish and customized my lesson to build on what I knew and develop new skills. I saw immediate improvement and really enjoyed hanging out with him - he’s a great guy. Very knowledgeable and great teacher.

Christian & Drake were personally awesome. They were cool guys. We did end up in the initial wrong location and were 30 minutes late to the resort after parking, getting gear on ect. They waited for us a group of 5 people. We get there immediately give the 101 of putting on the gear how to walk with a snowboard attached and get on the lift. Once up in the mountain I did feel like they could have been more attentive especially with teenagers in the group that was their first time. They were going over to greet other riders while we had already a short session due to us being late so that was a bit off putting. Other than that - we did learn enough to ride and get down the mountain by ourselves. All of our group was eventually able to snowboard a distance before falling and we’d like to go back snowboarding again!

It was my first time getting a snowboarding lesson I would consider myself a mid-level. It was fun to learn from a professional I’ve made some progress and I feel ready to get going!
