To You and your Family,
This will be my 32nd season associated with the Angel Fire Ski & Snowboard School, my 17th as Director. I have seen many changes at the Resort and in the Industry, but one thing has never changed; the incredible talent, devotion and passion for teaching that has been the hallmark of the Angel Fire Instructor since the inception of the school in 1966!
I am privileged to lead such a team of professionals! Professionals, because the vast majority are certified ski and snowboard pros of the Rocky Mountain Division of the PSIA-AASI! Some of our Instructors have worked in Angel Fire for over 20 seasons; all are continually training, developing professionally by credentialing as Children’s Specialists and Freestyle Specialists. It has always been true that the greatest Teachers are first voracious Learners!
Our teaching systems and “technique” too have changed over the years, but our shared goal has not! We still stress “Safety, Fun and Learning” in that order and although they are certainly not exclusive of each other, they are all very achievable within a timeframe that transcends the arduous and athletically demanding history of our sport! Learning is easier and safer and certainly more fun than it has ever been!
We not only want you to become a New Skier or Rider if you have never tried up till now, we want you to become one of our family of returning enthusiasts! That is why we are thrilled to introduce our HIGH FIVE program! This 5 day progressive program will get you out of the bunny hill and up on the mountain with all of your friends, old and new! When you are finished, you will have earned a Season Pass with a huge discount on a pass for the following season!
Our Children’s Programs are second to none! 95% of all Parents in the 2012-2013 season ranked us above the 90 percentile (%). Our class sizes are the smallest in the region and our “on-snow time” is the longest. No frozen chicken nuggets either. Our chef creates a menu of homecooked, hot comfort foods that are both filling and nutritious. Again this season, we are partnered with FLAIK GPS systems, tracking each child for your peace of mind and to track their progress!
So, “Why is our School Better?” It really is because of the people who make up our Team! From the Instructors to our Front Desk folks to our Daycare staff, we are committed to making your experience a learning partnership that will help create Family memories of your favorite winter playground, Angel Fire Resort!
Angel Fire Resort Ski & Snowboard School
To keep up with all the great happening this ski season, make sure to follow the Angel Fire Resort Ski & Snowboard School on Facebook.
This season we partnered with Flaik, a GPS-based alpine guest tracking system. Children enrolled in lift-served lessons will be equipped with a lightweight armband locator, and real-time tracking is available for the ski school management to immediately ascertain the location of individual children. Images are captured multiple times per second, allowing detailed analysis of location and turn shape. This system ensures increased security and peace of mind for parents, instructors and management. In addition, parents and children can view their runs, vertical feet skied and other stats online.
Regardless of where you are on the learning curve, we have a full lesson program tailored specifically to your needs. We will provide you with all the tools—easy practices, thorough insights and fun building blocks—to take your skiing and snowboarding to the next level. Review the program options and many helpful hints here on our website. When you’re ready call us at 800-633-7463 to make your ski and snowboard school reservation, and let the fun begin!
Advance reservations are highly recommended. You should make your Ski & Snowboard School reservations at the same time that lodging reservations are made to ensure that your space is secured. Especially during peak periods, waiting until closer to your trip date may result in some classes being unavailable. Advanced reservations must be made no later than 48 hours prior to arrival by calling our Reservations Department at 800-633-7463.
