Anyone know any instructors that will be at Crystal (WA) this season (and would recommend them)? I don't see any listed. Will likely be taking 5-8 half day lessons throughout the season. One or two will be with my 6 y/o daughter who is rapidly advancing - I did that once last year and picked up a lot of little drills for her that she actually enjoys doing (actually have trouble stopping her from repeatedly doing that flat sliding 360 thing anytime she gets on a gentle slope ). She will also be doing a group multi-week. I am a level 6-7 as near as I can tell. I would like to work on improving in the moderately steep and deep when not with her. Had a great instructor last year for a single lesson in Feb (don't remember his name but he told me he was moving to california anyway), he was the one who took me over to the northway lift (more advanced terrain at Crystal). Before that I had never gone back there as I was uncertain if I could get back out - after that lesson I spent 80% of my time playing back there for the rest of the season.
Neither my daughter nor I have any preference for male/female. Daughter is a really happy kid and takes instruction very well.
