Breckenridge Ski and Snowboard Lessons

Breckenridge Ski School Private Ski Snowboard Lessons


Hello!!! My name is Ted Amenta. I began teaching ski and snowboard lessons with the Breckenridge Ski & Snowboard School in 1994. I've since earned P.S.I.A. Level III and A.A.S.I. Level II ski/snowboard instructor certifications. And although over half of my teaching experience is with adults, I have also earned the Children's Specialist II accreditation. And I also have a P.S.I.A. Level I Telemark certification.

Everyone who books a lesson with me has the option to receive free video analysis. Just mention the desire to do so during our time together. Visit my "BreckSnowPro" YouTube channel to see videos taken with other guests.

If you would like to take a private ski or snowboard lesson with me (or anyone else for that matter) please book well in advance. Breckenridge Ski & Snowboard School private lessons often sell out days ahead of time and even requests are sometimes turned away.

During peak season (Christmas, Spring Break, and Holiday Weekends) lift lines are sometimes longer than usual, making the benefit of bypassing these lines in a private lesson even more valuable. These are also the times when private ski & snowboard lessons are in the highest demand. So once again, be sure to book your lesson(s) in advance.

03/16/2023 Update: I'll create a new calendar below for April and May once spring break is over. As of today, I have no bookings yet these months.

Dates I am already scheduled for a lesson.

    Dave Kamke: "The ski industry, instruction and the guest experience is not a job for me. It’s a career. I’ve devoted my entire life to it. I started in this industry as a member of the National Ski Patrol while I was in high school and never looked back. My time is dedicated to my clients, training and coaching Breckenridge ski & snowboard instructors, and training and certifying instructors throughout the Rocky Mountain Division."
