At some point,  you have to trust someone to do their job.

Please note that I was not looking for recommendations for me personally.  I've had enough experience with ski schools in the southeast and out west to know what to do for me or my daughter.  Our experiences have been quite good.

So there we have it. Vickie's experience with Robin Barnes and her experience with the yet to be named L1 should say something. She remembered Robin's name and stated the lesson was remarkably better than the lesson with the L1 coach. Imagine that. I've been saying all along that comparing the two is almost unfair to the L1 because that coach is just starting out and shouldn't be expected to be Robin's equal.

Thanks to those of you who contributed to this discussion.  I think it's time to move on to other topics in other threads.

 

Hope to meet a few of you at Big Sky in March!
