A huge thank you to my ski instructor, Kevin ( I think his last name started with a H) for making my first downhill ski experience a great one today. His enthusiasm & obvious passion for his sport were obvious and contagious. The entire group of beginners felt good about even tiny amounts of progress with his encouragement. He made it a really fun experience. I will be back for more downhill for sure. Give Kevin a raise!
I might add that my two sons (ages 5 and 11) took snow boarding lessons while I took my ski lesson and they also had a very good experience as well as a lot of fun. We were really impressed with the level of one-on-one attention that the kids received. I do not know the name of their instructors or otherwise would let you know.
We specifically chose Mt Hood Meadows as a place to take lessons as we had asked around and been told that it was the best place to give downhill and snow boarding a go. I have been cross country skiing for 20+ years and was glad to have the chance to give another snow sport a try. We plan to return to Meadows!
