That's the window price. Book now online and save!Wait, for a full day, half day? How about a WEEK?
Dude, you'll be RICH if they tip accordingly! (Or, people will be so broke from paying for the lesson that they won't tip.)
You get a 6.5 hour private lesson, from 9 to 3:30. It includes lift line cutting privleges, and you can include up to 5 friends/family. That's it. Nothing else included.I wonder how many will book a lesson at that price. On the surface it seems a bit insane but need some more information about what you get for the money.
For 6 people that’s more reasonable, but still pricy for what amounts to a one day group lesson.You get a 6.5 hour private lesson, from 9 to 3:30. It includes lift line cutting privleges, and you can include up to 5 friends/family. That's it. Nothing else included.
There IS an "underground" private lesson market in Vail... I dont and havent had ANY part in it but have known about it for the past few years.Whatever you think of them, the suits in Broomfield are not stupid. They have a pretty good idea what the market will bear.
But it blows my mind.
That is a little over $200 per person for an all day small group lesson with line cutting privileges and the people in the group are family or friends. I don't think I would do it but it doesn't seem that bad for those that can afford it.For 6 people that’s more reasonable, but still pricy for what amounts to a one day group lesson.
Around here, privates are usually $100-$125 an hour. For a 6.5 hour lesson, that would be $650-$812.50 ... though I think some places lower the rate a bit for multiple hours. Of course, the place around here I've taken the most lessons (Whitetail) is now owned by Vail, so we'll see what happens to lift tickets and lesson prices this season. I'm guessing not much change initially - and they had already been raising private lesson prices the last couple of seasons.There are places you can get a WEEK of cat skiing for that!
There are some great L3's on mountains all over the country for under $100/hour.
