Learn From The Best: Top Ten Ski Schools

Turning Points

Great ski teachers are everywhere, maybe as close as your backyard hill. But similar to university professors, distinguished instructors congregate at institutions where instruction is a tradition, tenure is based on training, terrain is tough and innovative research and experimentation thrive. Though they may have other jobs in summer, they believe that partaking in the winter lifestyle is life's passion. These competitive pros hustle for business, become disciples of inspired directors and work where there is a clear mission and commitment to serving guests-especially children. Like prestigious colleges, renowned ski schools offer specialized programs, understand your needs and respond in flexible, creative ways. In the opinion of SKI's readers, these are the Ivy League ski schools.
