I am going on a last-minute trip up to Tahoe on Wednesday, 4 Apr.
I hope to take a lesson on Thursday ($139 all-day group lesson at Squaw or Alpine ... ouch!).
Does anyone recommend some nice blue cruisers at Squaw and Alpine?
My group will also be going to Homewood, which I hit in early March. At Homewood I liked warming up on Rainbow Ridge and then got some nice turns on Bonanza and Miner's Delight before it got bumped out after in the afternoon. I would like to give High Grade a go off the Ellis Chair this time around.
Any suggestions to help me progress would be great! Again, I hope I can get in with my group early enough to get a lesson. I am 5'10" 160lbs, 167cm K2 Apache Raider, Rossignol Zenith3 100 boots and this weekend will be days 7-10 on the snow for me this year. I have had trouble with getting in the back seat when I get on steeper blues and up to speed. I bought some cheap used Volkl Unlimited R1 in 156cm as a short spring/rock ski to practice on and I am thinking about using these depending on the conidtions to help me get closer to carving. I have really plateaued and I am frustrated with my turns becoming Z-turns or a series of hockey stops/one-leg squats.
Excited to head up there tomorrow!
