About Zach Mehrtens

I'm from Illinois and grew-up snowboarding in the midwest. When I'm not shredding, I'm in the gym, on a lacrosse field, or playing with my dog. It's incredible that I get to teach one of my favorite passions, hopefully, I can help boarding become one of yours!

Zach had great energy and was super patient with our 3 years old. She had such a positive experience for her first time skiing.

Zach was friendly and exactly appropriate for a first time 12 year old. We would definitely recommend Zach as an instructor.

He is very nice. We enjoyed having him our instructor. Initially my daughter was hesitant to continue with the lesson but Zack motivated her very well and she continued to try and learn.

Zach was the best part of my intro snowboarding experience. He helped me feel comfortable, confident and educated on how to tackle an entirely new skillset to me. We laughed, worked through my beginner frustrations and was extremely kind and patient with me. If you are looking to take an intro course to skiing or snowboarding, Zach is your guy.

His was very attentive, patient, and treated my 5-yo and my 9-yo according to their age, allowing the younger to enjoy the basics while pushing the older to take controlled risks and learn more.

Zach was wonderful with Kyle and Penn. Will recommend him and snow schoolers to many friends with young kids!

Zach was awesome! He was patient with all of us and silly with the kids! We really enjoyed having him as our instructor and even on day two we remembered the basics he taught us! Thank you for an awesome day!

Zach was amazing with the kids, his energy level got them excited to ski and he really met them at their level. We were very impressed and pleased with the skills the kids picked up with this being their very first time on skis. They loved every minute of it and are already asking when they get to ski again. I would highly recommend Zach to anyone needing lessons!!

There wasn’t much not to love about Zach!! He was so patient and informative for this family of first time skiers. Couldn’t have picked a better instructor to teach our daughter (and us!). Would recommend Snow Schoolers to anyone. Thankful for this experience, it was amazing!!

Zach was very courteous and had the best positive attitude. He saw what I needed help with and we worked on it. His instruction was clear and I learned new techniques from him.

Zach is a great teacher! Caden got a very thorough introductory lesson and was cruising down the hill with confidence by the end of the hour. Still have a few things to learn, but it was a safe, fun way to introduce him to skiing and he LOVED it. Looking forward to coming back for snowboarding lessons! Great program! Thanks again!
