Ok so I'm 40 years veryold, caught the ski bug only a couple years ago, but I want to be as good a skiier as I can. My total on-mountain experience is about 35 days so far, during which my carving has gotten decent but I still struggle keeping both edges engaged and my turns sometimes get too narrow, pick up too much speed, freak out. I started to get the idea of floating over crud in Jan but I really suffer in varied terrain.
I want to ski moguls, and I think learning how will help my overall skill, but they scare the prunes-and-applesauce outta me. I know I have company because there are a thousand threads with similar testimonials on this forum. Sooooo I recently bought Dan Dipro's, Chris Fellow's, and one of Harald Harb's books and am reading them now. Books aren't going to be enough for me though, I need hand-holding, sippy cup help down a nice easy bump run a few hundred times before my brain stops telling me I'm gonna DIE. I did take a group lesson in Jan but it really didn't do much for me.
So I have three choices in March:
1. Get some miles in. Good old fashioned experience, don't rush it.
2. Private lesson. I'm already looking at the instructors list. Between breck/keystone, easy bump run?
3. "Bumper Buster" camp at copper: http://www.coppercolorado.com/winter/ski_and_ride_school/youth_seasonal_programs/bump_buster_camps. Seems like a deal for two days instruction but I really don't know anything about it.
So based on my level and experience, what would you recommend?
