Amazing ski instructors. Kids absolutely enjoyed skiing and learned a lot in just a few days.

My 3 boys and I had a group private snowboarding lesson. Our instructor, Billy, was fantastic. He was prompt, really friendly, great with the kids, and very patient!

I have been using NISS kids for my son for several years and he has turned into a phenomenal skier. More than that, he has developed a deep love of the mountains and the sport itself. I credit both of these things to Andy and the team at NISS especially as I am not a huge skier myself. He will carry this with him for the rest of his life and that is a wonderful thing. Thank you.
