“Our family has skied at the Peak for years, including 2 generations of instructors.  When it was time to teach our 3 boys to ski, I knew that they would be in fantastic hands learning from such qualified teachers.  For the past two seasons, I have been taking the children once a week, during our school day, for a ski lesson and an afternoon of skiing.  It has been a perfect fit for our busy homeschooling family.  During the day, the resort is more relaxed and less crowded.  When most kids were in school playing dodgeball for P.E. our boys were on the slopes developing a lifelong love of skiing. The staff at the Peak has transformed our children from hesitant beginners into skiers who are confident on any hill.   The children look forward to next season learning to better ski the moguls and perfecting their parallel turns.  Not bad for 3 kids who were afraid of the lift just a few years ago!”      Laura Restifo – Homeschool parent
