"Let's ski!"...Bill Jones

To book your private lessons at Keystone, Breckenridge, other Vail Resorts--learn about lessons below and/or scroll to bottom of this page.
You may contact Bill with inquiries but do not ask to make arrangements for lessons other than through the ski school. Why?
Also note that Bill or any instructor cannot be reserved for group lessons.

Read Bill's 2018-2019 annual ski letter.

Read Bill's 2016-2017 annual ski letter:  updates on skiing, equipment tips, and technique brush-ups.

Bill is available for full-day private lessons in alpine skiing at skill levels from 1 through 7 and for ages 8 and up. "Private" lessons may include multiple persons.

Information/pricing for full-day private lessons: Make arrangements at ( is not a Vail Resorts website.)

  • If renting equipment (not included with lesson), consider renting it at the resort. That way, if an equipment adjustment is needed it can be done with less interruption to your lesson. The company exits has locations near lift bases at most of the Vail Resorts ski areas and you can reserve your gear online--useful as at busy times equipment may be limited in some sizes or types and wait-times for fitting your gear can be less.

    If you will rent equipment at a resort, arrive at the rental shop for fitting at least one hour before your lesson, more on busy days such as holidays, school vacations. Or rent it the afternoon or evening before your lesson--check for shop hours.

  • For more considerations on private lessons, and for comparing pros and cons of private lessons versus group lessons, go to Why Take a Lesson from a Professional Ski Instructor and scroll down to "Private vs. Group Lesson".
