About Elise Bankosh

Hello my name is Elise and I was born and raised in San Jose, California. I grew up skiing at Bear Valley Ski Resort and remember loving just being out in the snow every winter. In high school I started snowboarding, and then in college was one of the only woman competing on the UC Davis Alpine snowboarding team. Over the years I have learned such great techniques from more experienced riders and skiers and hope to share my knowledge with anyone who wants to learn!

Elise was great with Noah. She very engaging throughout his private lesson and clearly encouraging whenever she saw Noah getting tired or frustrated. Her skill set with being able to teach kids while simultaneously having them feel comfortable is invaluable. We saw Noah having a blast the entire time.

Elise was great, she was patient with our 5 year old and encouraged him to try outside his comfort zone. She helped him learn how to do turns in his 2nd class. We will be back for more lessons with her.

Elise was very professional, skilled, personable, and patient. Both my kids, 8 and 10, had a blast during their snowboarding lesson with Elise. They can’t stop talking about their experience. They both progressed so much in their skills, one being a beginner and the other with some experience, especially during a short amount of time. We will definitely return in the future.

Elise is a great instructor. My 5 year daughter had 3 lessons with Elise over 3 days and I saw how she improved each day. Elise worked with my daughter on areas to improve her skills and help gain her confidence. One of the lessons was half day, Elise was able to engage my daughter the entire time and had lots of fun while working on improving her skills. Elise created a very positive and enjoyable learning experience. We will back for more lessons with Elise.

It was amazing and I don't expect that my kid learned this much on the first lesson. Great teacher. Elise is nice to everyone.

Coach Elise was beyond exceptional. It was my son’s first time skiing (2.5 yo!) and she made it fun and exciting for him and now all he talks about is skiing. She taught him so much in just one hour and he was able to ski by himself after just 20 mins. Also he asked her (basically obsessed her! ) to take him to the higher slope and she was so kind that she took him twice and gave him an unforgettable experience. My son still talks about Elise every day since last week and he said: Coach Elise said: if we fall we learn!”. Elise is a very responsible, kind and fun coach and she is so good with little children! We will definitely book with her again next time!

Elise provided very clear instructions and helpful tips to start our snowboarding journey. It was a very positive first experience which motivates us to continue working on our skills. Thanks to Elise and her positive energy, we were able to learn to control speed, and get comfortable with heel and toe turns during our class. We were very satisfied with our progress using all lessons and tips from this class. Thanks Elise!

Elise was an amazing instructor for our family. She brought a great positive attitude, was patient and really taught to the level of each of us individually which consisted of limited experience skiers of ages 4, 6 and 38. Would highly recommend Elise for individual or group lessons if you're looking to ski for the first time or hone your skills further.

Elise was awesome! She really engaged Robby and met him at his developmental level. She made the lesson super fun for him, while also teaching him the basics. We just wanted his first lesson to be fun, to hook him, and thanks to Elise, it was certainly a success! All he wanted to do the next day was get back to the slopes! Thanks Elise!

Elise was patient but firm with my younger daughter who was exhibiting a negative attitude. All the while, she was pushing my older daughter and I out of our comfort zones and doing a great job ensuring we got the basics down. She asked me about our goals at the start of the session and ensured we competed all of them by the end. I would highly recommend Elise.

Elise was very patient and attentive to the kids. 7 and 4 year old boys are a handful, easily distracted and hard to keep focused. She did a great job keeping their attention and working independently with each one for their specific needs. I couldn't imaging them being in a group lesson with other kids and one instructor. Doing private lesson is the way to go and Elise was amazing.

Just for the few hours we had Elise she was amazing. The girls bonded with her so quickly. My oldest picked up really quick, and my youngest, who can be difficult and not want to try out anything sporty, actually really loved the experience. Thank you so much! I would highly recommend Elise. She was so sweet. The following day she even came up to the girls, which meant a lot to them and us. Thank you!

Elise was a wonderful blend of upbeat, yet calm. All three of our kids (teens and a 6yr old) found her prompts and demonstrations so easy to understand. She was so patient with them and gave them space to learn while also giving good prompts and keeping them from getting hurt 😅 I’ve been to many other resorts and Granlibakken is the best place for kids to learn! Better teaching than any other place in Tahoe. So glad we stopped for sledding, and then signed up for lessons. Thank you Elisa and Jack!

Elise really tailored the instruction to our childrens needs. Not easy to do when working with two children at once! Our kids were so excited to ski with Elise again; her enthusiasm and dedication to helping people learn to ski completely shines through. We were so impressed with how Elise asked us what our goals are for our children and then asked our children what their goals were as well. We’ve never had a ski instructor do that before and it was very much appreciated! We feel so lucky our children have had Elise teach them a couple times now and hope we can see Elise and have her teach them at Homewood this season. They absolutely have such a positive view of skiing and so much of that is due to Elise! On a side note, we also wanted to mention how impressed we were with how Elise pivoted when the main chair lift was not operating. Though that was really where our kids needed to be, she quickly thought of an alternate plan and found ways to still teach them new skills even while just on the bunny slopes. Lastly, we really appreciated her supervisor being willing to let us have a lesson this morning for an hour to make up for the two hours the main lift wasn’t working. That showed us how much snow schoolers cares about their customers and strives to have happy customers. While the situation was out of all of our control, it was a very kind gesture and the kids were beyond excited to get to ski with Elise one last time this morning. Thanks again!

We really hope to be back very soon to work with Elise again!

Elise did a great job of coaching my daughter. She was very patient with her and encouraged her to keep trying. My daughter struggled at first, mostly because she was more interested in throwing snowballs. After a few runs, she was going down and stopping without assistance. Thank you Elise!

This was my son’s first time skiing. Elise brought great energy to the lesson and really engaged my son. She helped him build his confidence and he made great progress with her during his lesson, learning to safely take the tow lift, and ski independently and safely stop. She was super attentive and her demeanor is great. My son really took to skiing with her guidance.

Elise was able to make my kids (5 & 7) feel comfortable and teach them the basics of skiing in a short amount of time. They were both hesitant about having a “lesson” but immediately after meeting Elise, they were engaged and focused on learning. After 1 hour, they were both making it down the mountain without assistance. I would highly recommend Elise to first time skiers!! Thank you for such a great experience.

Elise was awesome. She texted that morning before the lesson to confirm, was ready on time and was very friendly and patient with the kids. Would definitely work with Elise again. However, we arrived at 9:45 for a 10 am lesson. Took over 15 minutes to check in and then waited another 10 minutes to have someone help us with rental gear, which took forever. After that was all complete, we missed half the lesson. Elise did the best she could with the time she had! Her supervisor spoke to us after the lesson but did not even apologize for the delay. And when we asked for sledding passes for the kids to make up for it, he offered one. Umm, we have two kids buddy. Anyway, Elise rocks and we highly recommend her!

Elise was fantastic. We weren't planning to do a second lesson on the following day, but our kids had such a good time with her and learned so much that we couldn't pass up the opportunity. Our daughter 6 and our son 3 both made great progress and really enjoyed the experience. Elise did a great job handling them, helping them have fun, pushing them but also making sure they stayed within their abilities, and following up after and sharing notes with us so we could reinforce the lessons on our end. Such a great experience.

She was patient and understanding as well as highly encouraging. If every person received this type of instruction, I have a hard imagining how anyone wouldn’t enjoy pursuing snowboarding. Elise and snow schoolers are the best!

Elise was a great ski instructor for our daughter. She is our third instructor with snow schoolers and everyone has been fantastic, but our daughter felt the most comfortable with Elise (probably a girl thing). I liked how Elise started off with quick warm up exercises so my daughter could become more comfortable with her. She also gave us good feedback on our daughters improvement and disposition throughout the lesson as our daughter became more comfortable working with her.

Elise was an outstanding instructor and very patient with my 7 year old son. A combination of many distractions everywhere and a short attention span Elise was great at redirecting him and was hands on to instruct. This was his first time learning to ski and at times he doubted himself Elise was great at building his confidence and courage to ski. She was so good at it that he only wanted to ski with her. We will definitely be back and requesting her for instruction again.

Elise did a great job introducing out five year old daughter Daria to skiing. Elise made Daria very comfortable and by the end of it they were cracking jokes together while going up and down the bunny slopes. Daria liked the lesson so much that she only wanted to have her second lesson with Elise and we had to change the schedule to make it happen. Looking forward to tomorrow!

Elise was super patient with my kids. They both were into the lesson at different times, and at other times just wanted to quit or go sled. She was awesome with handling both at once and working on the basics with them. After we left, my daughter said she missed Elise so I know they had fun learning even though it didn't really look like it. They've both asked about skiing again already, which was the ultimate goal! Thanks Elise!

This was my kids’ first time snowboarding. They’re ages 10 and 5. Elise is great with children! She was very interactive and engaging. She was also protective and made sure the kids’ path down was clear every time they went down the hill. Before the end of the hour, both were independently snowboarding down the small hill with confidence. At the end of the lesson, my kids said they had a great time and they really liked Elise. We’ll definitely ask for her next time we enroll for a lesson. Thank you, Elise!

Elise was great! My 5yo son had a great time and learned so much in 1 hour! He wanted to keep skiing and practicing after the lesson. Would definitely recommend to friends. Best place for kids beginner ski lessons.

Elise was an amazing instructor. It’s not easy teaching 2 kids and a highly uncoordinated adult, but she did it so well. We all had so much fun. My 10 year old was super scared before we started the lesson, by the end she cannot wait to come back. Thank you Elise! We’ll definitely be back!
