Default Recommend lessons for beginners in Breckenridge?

Hey,

a group of us are snowboarding in Breckenridge, in January. One or two of the group will need beginner lessons when they're there. Can anyone recommend a good instructor/school?

Cheers

Unfortunately the instructors I knew there have moved on to other mountains or no longer teach. Any of the peaks you start out with should be fine and the mountian follows AASI standards. If you want the best possible outcome sign them up for private lessons either in the same group or seperately. You can also request a certified instructor to get the best possible results of them learning from someone that was highly interested in learning and bettering themselves too. For which of the three to choose the best option is to call the school and ask with of the three locations is the best for beginners to learn on terrain wise. I do vaguely remember peak 8 as having some decent terrain for teaching but that was a long time ago and I wasn't there to teach or learn, just to play.

They are going to be best friends with the Quiksilver lift on peak 9 lol. I know a few people that have done the school there at Breck and they were hitting the intermediate runs in a few days.
