Need recommendations for kids snowboard lessons Tahoe
It's been a while since I've put my kids in ski/snowboard school, but my sister and BIL and their kids (ages 6, 8, 10) are coming from the East Coast to spend their spring break in NL Tahoe with us the first week of April 2012. All of her kids would be first-timers on skis/boards. Her two younger kids will be taking ski lessons, her 10-yo will be taking beginning snowboard lessons with my 10-yo (skier-turned-snowboarder, has taken snowboard lessons twice before but is still a beginner).
1. We're thinking of Squaw/Alpine or Northstar.
2. Does it make sense to do a full week of kids lessons at one resort, or split it up, like a few days at one resort, then a few days at another resort?
3. Can kids handle 5 days straight of beginner lessons, or is it better to do two days on, one day off, two days on?
The adults and my older son will be boarding and skiing while the younger kids are in lessons, so I guess the kids lessons will have to be full-day.
(I posted this in the Location Reviews section since I'm asking specifically about Squaw/Alpine/N*, but would like to hear recommendations for kids lessons at other places in NLT as well)
