What are people saying about the retreat?

“I am a life long avid skier and have a wife who has attended the Ladies Swain Ski Retreat the last 2 years. I have observed her technique vastly improve as a direct result of the retreat and the awesome efforts of Stephanie Ingalls. My wife says of Stephanie is an excellent ski instructor for students of all abilities. She individualizes instruction so each student maximizes improvement in their skiing technique. The staff at Swain are very helpful to new skiers, are polite, courteous and have good customer skills…” Jerry C. -Tripadvisor Review
