You've booked your airline tickets online and reserved your lodging through the ski resort's website, but what about your ski lessons?
Most major resorts now allow you to book group ski lessons online. An online reservation lets you complete paperwork ahead of time, cutting down hassle at check-in. And at all Vail resorts, you can reserve rental equipment simultaneously. This may save you a significant amount of time in the morning: Instead of waiting in long lines at the ski school desk, you'll have an instructor to help you or your child at every step-from rental equipment to ski school lineup. Privates, however, still require in-person sign up. For information about registering online for group lessons, go to the websites of any major resort and look for the link to ski school.
