Background: I'm in my late 30s, got my Level 2 in 2008, I teach on weekends at Grouse Mtn and sit at a desk banging on a keyboard during the week. My fitness isn't great, as I'm quite physically inactive in the summer and don't do much pre-season prep.
I took the L3 Course in March 2012 @ Grouse, and failed both portions of the exam at Grouse in April 2012. I passed the teaching exam on my retest at Grouse in April 2013, but failed the skiing portion.
Perhaps unwisely, I attempted another retest at Whistler only 3 weeks later (April 30), but I enjoyed the experience anyway as it gave me a chance to see what an exam at a big mountain would be like. As has been mentioned in other threads, it was a huge group with a tiny pass rate -- only 2 out of 22 on the ski portion. Plus, it was a gorgeous spring day with surprisingly good snow (-5C, well groomed hardpack with a dash of fresh), and I really enjoyed the camaraderie shared with other exam candidates. I recognized two of the examiners: Sami Chouinard and Ken Paynter...there were five in all.
So if you search around, you will come across past threads in which I've mentioned what the feedback I've received is from examiners, colleagues, etc. But I rather not taint you with that, and have you guys look at me with fresh eyes and go to town on what you think about my skiing. Please preface your feedback with whether or not you are familiar with the CSIA standards -- I will still value your feedback if you're not, but I'd prefer to have the context to interpret it appropriately.
Here we go!
