This ski weekend is for men and women, singles or couples, focused on intermediate through advanced skiers. However, I will have an instructor available for beginner/advanced beginner if there is a need. We will be spending a lot of time on our skis so be well rested and prepared for an exciting weekend of fun. The ski lesson is a skate ski lesson only.

More details on the Ski Lesson and Activities
Ski Lesson: Intermediate/Advanced Ski Lesson. Please come with goals in mind. We will stay together for the group ski lesson.
Video: If weather and time permits I will video each of you and provide feedback, either on the snow, or after dinner. During the weekend (targeted for after dinner on Saturday) I will provide additional discussion to help you meet goals that you identified in your ski lesson/activity. You will get so much out of reviewing ski videos and listening to the group discussions on efficient ski technique. The PSIA technical model and USSA sports performance triangle will be also discussed.
Ski Activity Focus: We will start out together and split up naturally for the other ski activities (approximately 1-2 hours each) . At the start of each ski activity, I will check in with everyone and develop a ski plan of action based on conditions and provide you with a personal ski focus. When we regroup off the snow we can check in with each other to share our experiences. You will be skiing at your pace so you can dress appropriately for your pace.
I look forward to sharing my love of skiing with you.
