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.

Drake was an amazing instructor and was very patient with us! Was even willing to show me how to go off a jump per my request (Definitely have some work to do in that regard lol). He was also kind enough to share knowledge on different activities for us to enjoy in big bear during our stay. Overall I enjoyed and learned a lot from our snowboard lesson and would definitely recommend for beginners. Thanks Drake!

Dave, our instructor, was amazing. My little guys have never been on skis before but he was super patient and great with them. They are 6 & 8, he handled the rougher moments with such grace. They loved him!

Willam is a great teacher who can efficiently convey the key of the skiing. He is very encouraging that when facing challenges he kept me on the right track and kept me working on the difficulties rather than easily bailing. I learned and enjoyed so much of the experience. So appreciated.

Dave was great - he was able to quickly determine what I needed to improve on and was able to effectively communicate to me. Was rewarding and fun to improve and be able to comfortably ski down the mountain by the end.

Dave was awesome with my daughter. She felt comfortable with him right away. He taught her new skills and it gave me time to ride.
