Good training school in Colorado?

I'm going skiing for a week in Colorado, and I'm thinking that only a day of tactical handgun training could make the trip better. Anybody know of any good training centers anywhere near Keystone? I've heard about Valhalla and if anyone can recommend them, thats not to far to drive. Are there any others?
Thanks!

Rob's joking (well, more or less) but after being there several times I can recommend it.

Well, I'm booking a class for the 13th at Valhalla. After I get back from my trip I'll let you all know how it was. Thanks! Oh and I see, Rob's the Rob that runs Valhalla. Well if you're there next week I'll see you then.

Zeroskillz: A ski vacation in April in Colorado??? Interesting...

I live here and unless you were able to make it during December-Februrary you missed an epic season. I went carving about 30 days, but didn't get up nearly as much as I wanted.

Right about now most resorts are open and the remaining snow is decent at best. Sure, Abasin is open until June and there are some die hards that love it, but in general I'd pass for this time of year. I can't imagine a whole week of Abasin. It's pretty small.

How was your firearm school/training? What was the price and what did you learn? Might be something I'd want to do...
