Joe, William, Alex. Last day of season for this ski instructor – thank you for helping to finish out in style! Level 9 group. Probably the most challenging skiing of the year – frozen bumps, 100s of them, 1000s of them, all day long. Squeezing out the last 10% of the turn, controlling the hands when balance is difficult, getting the park rat some upper body discipline (sorry Alex, that just slipped out). Video to put pictures with all those words, one ski drills to have fun and push the limits. Good conversation at lunch to help make the last cup of oat meal more palatable. My appreciation

Annand, Sanjay, Nolan and Seetha – Garnet Valley, PA. For the adventurous kids – stand taller with more movement in the ankles and knees, hands in front to see them, turn skis together with narrower stance (minimize the wedge). For the mother – relax, more flexibility in legs, leg rotation to turn skis, less edge/flatter, skid and shape. A fun day with much progresss.

Frank, Andrew, Arianna – bumps were the name of the game today – White Crown, Rustler, North Star, Crescendo. Pressure management, active ankles and knees to flex/extend, tactics, continual motion to avoid turn ‘dead spots’, feet retraction to stay balanced with hips. Arianna’s first double black – Rustler – a day to remember. Many turns and changes in three days – thank you for coming to play!
