Many of our top Junior racers learned to love skiing from great volunteer instructors like these.  The instructors have lots of fun too:

"This was my second year as a volunteer instructor for the Learn to Ski program. I started out coaching my son's group when he was 8.  He is now 10.  I originally thought that I would not be able to volunteer coach again this year because my son was too old for the program.  Then I thought, "Why not just continue to volunteer?  He can still come to the lessons and assist me when needed and besides it commits us to getting off the couch on Sunday afternoons!" I particularly like working with the older kids.  They tend to learn fast and are pretty independent, yet you can still be easily bribe them with candy."
-- April Abate-Adams

"He [Felipe] and our two daughters had a blast. We just moved to Utah and this is our first time living near the snow.  We lived in Hawaii previously and love to surf, so we figure now we must teach our children and ourselves to ski. We heard about TUNA from our neighbor and she insisted to give it a try. We could not have been more pleased.  I volunteered Felipe to be an assistant because he had some experience during his college years in Colorado. The energy from the children and adults was so positive and encouraging. The effort put forth to make each week exciting and fun really paid off. We can't wait to do it again next year!"
