Have a die-hard skier in your life? Or, just looking to gift yourself something truly awesome this holiday season? The Madeline Hotel and Residences has an experience available just for you that is almost too awesome to believe. 

This holiday season, the Telluride, Colorado hotel is offering up one-on-one ski lessons with Olympic silver medalist Gus Kenworthy.

With the package, Kenworthy, who took home the silver in the men's slopestyle event at the 2014 Winter Olympics, will take you down his favorite trails, offer up some of his best ski tips, and will even share a few of his secrets to “landing impressive tricks to look like a pro.” (Not that you want to try them for yourself or anything, but it’s cool to hear him explain the adrenaline rush.)

With the package, skiers will also gain access to a few of Kenworthy’s favorite post-ski relaxation and recovery items, including wireless headphones from Know, and a Hypervolt percussion massage device, so they can soothe their sore muscles after trying to keep up with the professional.

“He knows his recovery routine off the mountain is just as important as his training,” the hotel explains about the package. “Get an insider’s peek into Gus’s après-ski regimen, and reduce pain and soreness, rejuvenate tired muscles, and accelerate recovery with some of his favorite gear, including Normatec recovery systems, a Hypervolt percussion massage device, and more, all while listening to a relaxing playlist on his favorite Know Headphones, personally compiled by Gus.”

The price for this once-in-a-lifetime experience? It’s running at $10,000 for up to four people. If you want in on the experience you better act fast as it’s limited to just Dec. 23 and 24. Who knows, maybe you’ll level up to a few double black diamonds thanks to his tips. See more about the package and book here.
