Private Lessons SLC, Utah

I was hoping to learn whether there might be a local instructor in the Salt Lake City area willing to give a 1/2 or full day private lesson to two women (beginners). Preferably,you will be available on Sunday January 15th or at some point between the 16th - 20th.

Alternatively, if anyone can recommend a particular instructor at any of the local resorts that we also be helpful.

Thanks.

If you don't find anyone I would suggest Brighton, cheapest prices and BY FAR the most novice\ beginner friendly resort in Utah.

Appreciate the input. We were planning to spend a day Brighton, probably best to stop there first considering your advice...

Anytime, Utah resorts(besides Brighton) generally tend be steeper than your average Colorado resort but the snow is also generally better\softer so it's somewhat off setting. If your learning resist the urge to go to Snowbird, epic terrain but steep, crowded(on weekends) and rocky terrible place to learn how to ride second only to Squaw Valley or Jackson Hole.

I realize Brighton is unique, but is there another resort similar to Brighton? Our group is two beginners and two intermediate/advanced riders...

PCMR is supposed to have a really good ski school. I am not sure but that is what I have heard.

For "easy" terrain I'd say Powder Mountain there's lots of fun blue rolling terrain and intermediate backcountry "like" terrain even powder country(in bounds "backcountry" at Powder mountain) where you ride a bus back up to the resort, had best riding day of life there last season.

PCMR like Snowvols said would also be a good option as they have lots of variety and a world class ski school, would do it during a week day though instead of a weekend.
