It's the end of another season. Time to reflect on what we have achieved and if we met our goals. I set a lofty goal of getting my 3s this year but in the end decided not to sit the exam. The main reason was I knew I was borderline and if the conditions were perfect I'd probably just scrap through but I will go for it when even in the worst conditions I can scrap through.
I set out to improve my skiing and knowledge and I think I definitely have a much better understanding of methodology. My eye has improved and I'm starting to get better at analysing skiers but it's still a work in progress. In terms of my ski improvement, I feel I'm a much stronger skier than at the start of the season with better lateral control. It's really interesting though when I reviewed my feedback from L1, L2 and L3 that I still have similar problems and the suggested solutions are very similar which goes to show how difficult it is to change and REFINE skills, and how what we are working on in our skiing is probably what we were working on years ago.
I'm starting to understand the 'advanced competencies' and how they are used to assess more skilled skiers and trying to apply them to my own skiing.
I had 6 friends go for exams and 2 passed, one went for it 3 times before finally passing.
I would love to hear about other people's year and what they have achieved, worked on, new insights etc. Whether they went for exams, if they passed or just missed out and feedback to why they didn't?
