If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur - Red Adair
The above quote has always been one of my favorites. Another one is "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." - and NO Einstein did NOT say it..
Our approach to all we do is based on PSIA/AASI (Professional Ski Instructors of America) , the Clendenin Method teaching concepts and best practices, and Modern Telemark Techniques by Absolute Telemark - René-Martin Trudel
We have all seen the "fine print" on the reverse side of a daily ticket and/or season pass. If you have rented gear or signed up for a lesson you also sign off you understand participating in Snow Sports has risks. Safety First is not only our number one (1) goal but also part of our motto - "Safety First - Have Fun!"
It is all about having fun!
If we are really honest with ourselves, there is a "gap" between what we THINK we are doing and what we are actually doing in our skiing.
The tools we employ to improve/enhance our skiing ability are called "drills". The first run of the day should be a "easy warm-up" run. Go thru a few drills to get get focused. Once you feel "dialed-in" then head for something more challenging. Getting in some "ski mileage" is the thing that really makes a difference.
