Northstar Ski School & Burton Academy

Using a terrain-based teaching philosophy, the trained professionals at Northstar are more than instructors. They're on-mountain concierges. They're experts in how and when to best enjoy Northstar's varied terrain. They're friends and mentors who help push skiers and riders of all ages and all skill levels to find their personal edge and grow their capabilities. 

After all, even olympians like David Wise and Linsey Vonn have a coach.
