I have a 7 year old daughter who has never skied before. I am a 40 year old dad that has skied in the past but will need to brush up on my skills a little. Do you offer lessons that we she and I can take together?

We will be glad to introduce your daughter to skiing one way or the other. If you would prefer to be together, then I would suggest a morning private lesson for both of you. However since your daughter has not ever skied you will be refreshing your skills from the beginning. Our staff can certainly coach you as well, but the tempo will be slower to start. I would ask you how much have you skied?

If you have skied quite a bit, and in the past you already knew how to turn, or even beginning parallel, you may want to reconsider. If that is the case, you may want to look over our Signature 5 product for your daughter, it's a fantastic product. You could consider taking a half day adult group lesson on that first day. Depending upon how you both do, you would most likely be able to ski together the following days, and or also consider a private lesson for the 2 of you at that time.

I hope this helps and please feel free to contact me if you would like to talk about it, or have further questions.

Mary offers such great advice. Take the time to have your own lesson. Let your 7 year old have fun with her peers. You will both benefit from your own lessons. Trust Mary, she knows her stuff!
