Keep in mind that location makes a difference. Just as it does for day ticket pricing. Also need to to consider what happens besides the actual lesson time. I've been at Alta Lodge when a 2 or 3 day camp is happening. The campers are spending all day doing stuff, starting with yoga before breakfast and including late afternoon workshops, plus they eat all meals together. It's pricey but I know of people who return annually.Mostly The difference in price. Since I have Epic, I thought about their clinic. I am not sure that it’s what I’m looking for as I might be better with some small group or a private for the cost of the clinic, hotel etc.
just looking and learning.
What helped me was finding a few ski buddies who were willing to share the cost of semi-private lessons at destination resorts. With 2-3 people, the hourly rate for each student is under $100. With a very experienced instructor, two friends don't have to be exactly the same ability level. The other advantage was that we picked the schedule that suited us, as opposed to having to match the plan of a multi-day clinic. Of course, it took a few seasons to find compatible folks for ski trips out west.
