About Adam Garon

From the white mountains of New England, I have enjoyed winter snow play since my early youth. Be it hiking in the mountains, biking, skiing, or snowboarding, mountain activities have always called to me. I am happiest when invited to share this passion with others. Lessons can focus on resort navigation, beginner basics, terrain park fundamentals, and all levels of free ride novice through intermediate.

This was probably one of our worst instructor experiences. Adam was constantly on his phone until I told him it was not OK. He seemed to be completely uninterested in his job, which made the whole experience quite dismal for my kids. For my 9 year old he was totally useless, did not help, so much so that my son got disheartened in the middle of the class and stopped. Adam should have cared more, helped more, encouraged more, instead of standing 20 feet away giving intermittent instructions, while sounding disinterested and bothered. Bottom line is - if you offered me another 3-hour session with Adam for FREE, I would not take it - that would be a complete waste of my family’s time and effort!

Adam was very personable, kind and patient with my daughter. He made the lesson fun, and it was pouring rain! Lily learned so much her first lesson. Adam had her go part way up on the bigger hill at Granlibakken by the end of her very first lesson ever.

Adam was great! Great approach and very patient with our girls. My only wish is that you offered shorter lessons. My little one ended up only lasting about 15 minutes, and my older one for only about an hour - so it was VERY expensive for what it turned out to be. Great location and a setting for a couple of first timers.

Adam was very helpful establishing a foundation for snowboarding in a very short period of time (1 hour). His instructions gave us the basics we needed to become beginner snowboarders. My only constructive criticism would be that my wife and I had a little trouble hearing him at times. Otherwise, his is instructions were excellent!

Did a nice job explaining and my son enjoyed the time. We were working on getting his parallel turns right and he made some progress.

I worked closely with Adam at Diamond Peak, and he was one of our most requested snowboard and ski instructor at the Children’s Center. In addition, he trained nearly every week and passed his Level 1 Snowboard and Level 1 Alpine in one season. He is one of the most hard working individuals I know and is super driven inside. He is organized, efficient, extremely competent, and has an excellent rapport with people of all ages.

Adam brings a sense of cheerfulness to his customers as he engages in genuine conversations with each and every one of his students while serving them with a smile. He has a willingness to go above and beyond without hesitation, and will stop at no ends to see his students succeed.

I supervised Adam while he was an instructor at Diamond Peak. He was always punctual, trustworthy, and dependable. His constant positive energy is an invaluable asset that helps him deliver great instruction to both children and adults.
