- Why are we #Better4 Less?
Propowderguides delivers private lessons and instructor continuity for multiple days and resorts at significantly less than a half or full day private lesson at the Northstar, Heavenly and Squaw-Alpine Ski Schools. Beginner, Intermediate and Expert Private Ski Lessons around Lake Tahoe.
Just like you can rent your ski equipment from a shop in the city instead of the resort ski shop, you can also rent your ski instructor or mountain guide from anywhere you want.
Seasoned by wisdom:
Propowderguides mountain guides, downhill companions and child teen chaperones are PSIA certified instructors or seasoned non-certified experts with years of international guiding and teaching experience, same as the ski resorts.
Free market meets ski & snowboard instruction:
Independent and affordable guiding and instructing have been prevalent in Europe and Japan for many years. The price for instruction at ski resorts in the United States has risen dramatically and now extends beyond the reach of most families, Propowderguides delivers comparable ski resort quality without their cartel pricing. American ski resorts don’t support independent ski instructing and guiding because they want to maintain their decades old monopoly control over ski lesson pricing.
You do have a choice and yes, it’s perfectly legal:
Just like you can rent your ski equipment from a shop in the city instead of the resort ski shop, you can also rent your ski instructor from anywhere you want. Your lift ticket is a contract (read the fine print on the back) that grants you and your independent and affordable instructor/guide the right to be present on the resort property and utilize its lifts and trails.
Just say know:
Who you spend your time with on the mountain and what you talk about is your business. If a resort “official” asks you about your activities on the mountain with someone they think is an independent instructor, politely tell them, “what we are talking about is none of your business, have a nice day.”
