About

Why ski with me?  I earnestly work to:

  •  Instruct to all learning styles having been both an instructor and an educator for many years.(Helps to reach even the most timid and hesitant student by using THEIR best method of learning.)
  •  Analyze movement and build on individual strengths.    (Use what the student brings to the lesson..sports, interests, experience...as the foundation for building a strong skier.) 
  •  Choose terrain for maximum learning and fun. (Move student to a more challenging slope only once confident in the skills needed to really enjoy it.)
  •  Challenge kids with adventure and games.  (You're on vacation, right? This should be great fun, not scary, hard or boring!)
  • Teach responsible skiing.  (We owe it to ourselves and others to ski safely, with concern for the safety of all who are enjoying the slopes.)
  •  Help others "LOVE TO SKI" and to want to Shred Better!   (There is no more exhilarating or gorgeous sport than gliding freely on the snow.)
  • Let's do this together!!!!! (SO BOOK NOW :)

Beginner - School Ski Lesson

I did the Free Learn to Ski day, and Gail was my instructor. She helped my group learn the fundamentals and work our way up to skiing confidently down the bunny slope. She taught us a lot in a short amount of time, and I would definitely recommend using her for a longer, private lesson that allows for more time and individual attention.

Gail is awesome! She is the coach for my daughter's Trailblazers group, and over the course of four weeks, my daughter has gone from a hesitant, wedge skier to a confident skier who can navigate steeper terrain with efficient turning and stopping. I am so glad my daughter has had the opportunity to work with Gail and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gail to anyone (of any age) looking to learn to ski or improve skills.

Beginner - 2 Hour Kids Private Ski Package

Gail was great with my 7 year old, Caleb. He is comfortable on skis and all greens. Gail let him take her on some adventurous runs and gave him great instruction on keeping his skis together and the mechanics needed to progress to the next level in his skiing. He had a great time! Gail is positive and energetic!

Beginner - 3 Hour Adult A La Carte Private Ski

My two children ages 9 & 10 spent the day with Gail. They were all smiles when I picked them up. Gail was great communicating with me on their progress after the lesson. It was a great boost to their skill and confidence to start off the season with a private lesson. They really enjoyed it and it got them thinking about their form on day one. I'd highly recommend Gail for skiers of any age.

Beginner - 5 Hour Private Kids Ski Package

Both of my children (beginner girl (5) and advanced boy (9) ) skied multiple times with Gail and both loved it. Gail is skilled, patient, kind and fun. She used all kinds of props, like balls and other fun toys, to teach my daughter various ski techniques. And she exercised great control over not son’s adventures into dififciit ski terrains. I highly recommend Gail, she is top rate!

Our 5 year old is fortunate to have Gail as his ski instructor! He looks forward to his “ski team” every Sunday and she’s really helped him get back to the basics. I love seeing in her progress reports that she notices how much he is dedicated to this sport!

My daughter Saylor had an incredible experience with Gail. Gail's patience and personality were a great fit with my 3 year old. Saylor had a great time, and thanks to Gail's passion for teaching and skiing my daughter is now a skier for life! I would highly recommend Gail and I will be requesting her as an instructor again. Thank you Gail!
