All the superlatives have been applied! Our leaders know how to do it all. From haute cuisine to great evening programs, from finding ski instructors with the perfect combination of humor and technical expertise to enabling us to experience the Tabernacle choir, the experience could not have been more complete. When our instructor, Allen, finally grows up - he is only 83 - he will really be an even more incredible skier. We still can't keep up with him!!! You'll never find a better experience on skis.

The Ski In/ Ski Out program in Park City, Utah is a winner and a value. The hosts, Sandy and Gary, strive to provide a welcoming atmosphere where one can "feel at home" while cultivating new friendships with delightful and interesting people. Truly a winning time with excellent skiing in a beautiful area. I want to return right now!!! Lynn

This was a wonderful ski trip. As a first time Road Scholar participant I was a little nervous about going alone. But I had a great time skiing. Food was super and other participants great. I felt right at home.

If all you want to do is ski and receive instruction along the way, this is the program for you. Your nannies (Gary and Sandy) take care of everything else; great food, steps to the slopes and your ski locker, good programs, all the information you can handle, and a wealth of knowledge about the area, the mountain, and the facilities. Great value! We loved it!

Outstanding program. The food was A+. Garry and Sandy go out of their way to accommodate your needs. The ski-in/ski-out experience is one you can't afford to miss.

Gary and Sandy as superb hosts, create a fun and exhilarating ski experience. From the fantastic food, the after ski-programs, experienced ski instructors, yoga/stretch classes in the morning, to the slope-side lodging, this program is the best! I am a life-long skier; this was my 3rd ski program with them, and have done several in Colorado with Road Scholar. I am looking forward to next year's possible treat from Gary: Perhaps a new program at Deer Valley. Happy Skiing!

This was my third ski trip with the same program and, as usual, I enjoyed the convenience of the accommodations, meeting wonderful people, and being well taken care of by the leaders who provided the efficient and thorough arrangements. However, what made this trip particularly memorable and meaningful to me is that the program allowed me to include my young adult daughter in the group. Even though I’d shared my wonderful Road Scholar ski program experiences with her, I always knew my daughter would appreciate it more if she could participate and experience it herself. It turns out, I was right! She has benefited over and beyond the professional ski lesson and made incredible progress with her very first ski trip. By mingling with many educated and sophisticated seniors, she was in fact learning a living history from the valuable stories of each individual life. I really think this kind of opportunity is beneficial and helpful to both generations which help both appreciate and understand each other. I hope Road Scholar will be more aggressive in promoting the inclusion of other age groups in its advertisements. I had to make several inquiries to clarify the requirement before I finally got my daughter added to this trip. Overall, it goes without saying, we had a blast, a great and outstanding time.

This was my first RS trip and I'm hooked. The group of participants were fun and interesting. Park City is a must see and the skiing was fantastic. The Host/Hostess are awesome people and their cooking was truly first class. I will be returning next year without hesitation.

We just got back tonight from spending two weeks with Gary and Sandy in their Road Scholar ski-in, ski-out program at Park City. It was superb, as always. We have been going to the program for 5 years now and heartily recommend it. As we have gotten older, we have searched for places that make it easy to get back and forth to the slopes, as well as not being too expensive. That's a tough combination to find, but this program meets and exceeds our expectations. For what we get, and it's a great deal, the price is very fair. Hope to see you there in the future. Don't forget: sign up early - even during the summer - so you can make sure that you get a room in the lodge. Rooms go fast. Lynn and Jay
