Snowboard Lessons: Telluride Ski & Snowboard School

The Telluride Ski Resort and the Telluride Ski & Snowboard School provide a fun, positive and safe structure for Pancho’s ski and snowboard lessons.


During the snowboard season, Pancho teaches private ski and snowboard lessons for the Telluride Ski & Snowboard School. Pancho’s first year instructing for the Telluride Ski Resort Ski School was in 1986 and his passion for teaching skiing and snowboarding has only increased throughout his lifetime. Pancho is very patient and he is certified to teach multiple snow sports thru the Professional Ski Instructors of America and the American Association of Snowboard Instructors.


The Rider-Board Performance Model is Pancho’s primary teaching tool. This skiing and riding model explains how a skier or rider with a strong stance should move to get performance from his snowboard. Biomechanics is how we align our skeleton to move athletically. Snowboarders with good posture control pressure and make carving and skidding moves while our snowboard react by flexing, carving and skidding.


Snowboard lessons with Pancho are about $375 for a Half Day and $675 for a Full Day. Pancho teaches snowboard lessons to groups of 2-4 riders.


Pancho snowboards on a 145cm Salomon Grip snow board. The board has an equalized side cut for carving tight turns. The Grip is a soft rocked board for easy butters and skidding. The Solomon Grip is forgiving.
