[Edit: I should clarify that, at least this season, I'm not talking about intensive training--don't have the time or the $$$ right now. I'm thinking more in the lines of 2-4 hours of decent instruction to get me pointed in the right direction.]
I've learned a ton from reading this forum this past week and put some of it into practice on snow, which is making my skiing even more fun than I thought it could be. I want more, and I know there's a limit to what I can learn by reading, so I'd like to find an instructor nearby who's student-centric. I'm some kinda intermediate skier, a female middle-aged desk jockey, used to be athletic but forgettaboudit, I'm not anymore. I can't go back to being a park ranger and off-season ski bum, but that doesn't mean I can't ski well enough to enjoy more & different snow.
Geez, sounds like one of those looking-for-love ads.
Anyhow, I see that pretty much every ski school in the SLC area is a 'member' of the PSIA, but that isn't any guarantee the instructor they'd give me is a good teacher; it can be hard for people to take me seriously (ah, still remember finding the great PT who didn't just stick me on some machine and walk away).
So, is there anyone in particular you'd recommend in the Cottonwoods--Alta (my current home hill), Snowbird, Brighton or Solitude? Feel free to message me if it's bad etiquette to endorse one instructor over another.
