  • Private all day lesson at Whistler Blackcomb $699

    Wow!
    Some controversy about Canadian Instructors at WB versus foreign workers/instructors..
    Seventeen-year-veteran ski instructor Paul Venner was quoted,
    The cost of a full-day private lesson this season is $699, before tax. At $33.75, Venner would earn $202, before tax.

    Who has over $700 for a single ski lesson? I'm working in the wrong business.

      The point is that the instructor doesn't make anywhere near that, regardless of length of service...

        I once saw a letter to the editor that defended $100+ lift ticket prices by comparing a family day on the slopes to a family day at Fenway Park, so perhaps you should just think of an all-day private lesson like it's tickets to the playoffs.
