North America's Top 100 Instructors

North America's Top 100 Instructors

posted: 04/28/2004

Great teachers do more than impart the mechanics of the sport. They guide you to new terrain and snow and act as trusted confidants who can help you find yourself as a skier. The best instructors don't stand on the hill and lecture. They move-and move you with them. The masters immediately grasp how you learn-whether it's by doing, feeling, watching or thinking. They challenge, reassure and empathize. They get results not by flooding you with information, but by slipping you that one nugget of wisdom that vaults you to the next level. SKI's panel of judges selected the best from a vast pool of ski instructors who were nominated by their home resorts, their ski school directors, their peers and their clients. Whether you're planning a ski vacation or just a day-trip to your favorite mountain, book a lesson with one of North America's finest instructors-and cultivate the expert skier within.
