After skiing in Deer Valley as a preteen kid for three years with my family I have a good idea of the system of the Deer Valley ski school. The deer Valley ski school is one of the best in the country. if you are six years old or older you are in the Adventure Club ski school. At about 9:45 A.M. you will ride the burns chairlift up to the ski school area, if it is your first day in the ski school an instructor will ask you how good you are and then will radio an instructor and ask him/her if they have room for an extra kid. If you have already been to the ski school you will find your instructor and ski off. Once you are off skiing with your instructor and usually four other kids your same level depending on how good you are you will take a run on the bunny slope to see if everyone is in the right spot. then you will usually head up to the carpenter express and take some runs down Bald Eagle Mountain. Then at about 11:30 A.M. you and your class and your instructor will either stop at Silver Lake Lodge, Snowpark Lodge, or Empire Canyon Lodge and eat lunch. After lunch (depending where you are) you will move up higher on the mountains and try some harder terrain but still easy enough that you can do it. Then at about 2:00 P.M. you will stop at either Silver Lake Lodge, Empire Canyon Lodge, (Silver Lake Lodge and Empire Canyon Lodge will be the most likely) or Snowpark Lodge to have a hot chocolate break. Then at about 3:00 P.M. you and your group will head back to Snowpark Lodge to meet your parents at 3:45. Once you find your parent you will get a report card. If you look at your report card there will be a category that says: "I need more milage in this zone" if it is checked "yes" you will most likely have the same instructor the next day. If it says no tell the instructor in the morning that you moved up a level and he/she will put you in a harder group. If you get lost there is no worries. Just tell a person in a green vest or jacket that you are lost and tell him/her your instructor's name they will radio your instuctor and you will be ruinited in shortly. (I know what happens when you get lost because my friend got lost).
