What is the tip average for a ski instructor?
$20 is a great tip for a group lesson, and $50 is good for a private lesson. The best tip I ever got was $300 for an all-day private. Instructor Three: Tipping 15 percent for adult groups and 10 percent for private clients is pretty standard. The best tip came from a little kid who emptied his pockets for some change.

Is being a ski instructor worth it?
Yes, it's expensive. Yes, it's worth it. Most ski schools have a ranking system for lessons and becoming certified will really help you. Take your level one exam as soon as you can to improve your wages and lessons (e.g.: impossibly good-looking Norwegian while skiing powder glades).
The price varies greatly. Ski lesson at a local ski hill may cost $35 - $50 per two hour session, while a ski school affiliated with a major ski resort may charge more than $100 for a full-day class. These prices almost always include the lift ticket, however, and often give you access to discounted gear rental.
Ski Valet - $2-5 per person, per day. A ski valet helps with rentals, stores shoes and provides dry boots each day, and stores your gear at the end of the day. They also provide trail maps, ski lift times, rides to the lift, etc. If he serves as a guide on special trails, tip an extra $50.
Tip $5 to $10 for half day lessons. For private lessons (which are typically assigned to the most seasoned and highest certified instructors), a recommended tip is $30-50 for half day private lesson. Or $60-100 for a full day private lesson is fairly common at most resorts.
