"Combining fun and expertise for serious results!"


Where do you want to go with your skiing skills? I will assess your goals after speaking with you, and help you choose a ski lesson geared toward reaching those goals. Some people have so much fun that they have no idea during their ski lesson that they're learning a new skill set that will last them a lifetime.

It's all about passion, having fun, pushing your boundaries, and surprising yourself. My name is Dave Holden, I'm an enthusiastic, personable individual that has a passion for teaching skiing. Ski lessons are for both the goal-oriented type, and for those who just want to have a great time! 


I've been a CSIA certified Ski School instructor for 7 seasons at Cypress Mountain in beautiful Vancouver, BC, working with hundreds of satisfied students of all skill levels, and ages.

Dave's infectious passion took it to a whole new level! He is a fun, lovely guy to be around, but super focused on the task in hand too. I always felt like I had got THE MOST out of every time I hit the slopes with Dave and I'm way better than I ever imagined thanks to him. 
Great teacher. Forever grateful student!

Dave has been coaching my 11 yo. son for the past 4 years. I saw my son maturing from a shy, cautious skier with average skills, to an adventurous young man, being able to increase great skiing skills and leverage on a lot of fun on the ski runs. Thanks to Dave, my son is an accomplished and well seasoned skier! Looking forward to a fifth seasons of ski lessons!

Sterling Ramberg - Seattle

My son had challenges learning to ski.  Many instructors made no headway until Dave.  Dave made the experience fun for my son and knew how unlock his potential.  So grateful!
