Do any of the Stowe Instructors on Epic do the Mountain Clinic/Mountain Session group lessons?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I'm thinking of taking advantage of the Bypass lesson deal (50% off), I'm not sure that my schedule will allow but I figured I would see if anyone on Epic would be teaching these lessons late next week (currently thinking I'll be up Thursday-Sunday, but that's still in a bit of flux).

 

The next question I have is how much variety do you think there will be in terrain to work on different things.  I'm a firm believer that even  time spent practicing drills on low angle groomers is very productive and often bears fruit in many different conditions, but if it's likely to be limited opportunities, I'll save my money for later in the season when there is more to work with.  I was up over Thanksgiving weekend, and it's a great start to the season, but it's still early season.

Stowe is a beautiful place.  I've learned a lot on that mountain. 

 

@epic would probably know who's involved.

I do, Josh does, SRBarry does. It's pretty much always a level 3 instructor.

There's quite a bit of terrain available, much more than usual this time of year due to the improved snowmaking. Nosedive is a nice black that's groomed most every day, and right now there are some nice bumps being left on the side. Lift line is being groomed only occasionally this year and provides a different challenge every day, Hayride always has a variety of conditions and options. Plus the usual intermediate stuff, the Gondi opens tomorrow and the sunny spruce chair started today.

The woods are no go right now, I ducked in today and it was nasty. But that's to be expected in early December.

I think it's always a good idea to get some clinicing in early in the season, I won't be working myself next week except for a private or two, but Eric or Josh can certainly lead you to the good stuff at Stowe.

Have fun,

as epic says literally every epic instructor can be found teaching that lesson at some point in time, if you want us ask for us and I bet the supervisor will put one of us on it.

 

I am pretty sure I will not be on mountain clinic next week. With that said I wish I was, I love working with people who are willing to spend time on low angle groomers working on stuff. Good luck and if your get a lesson by yourself I am sure the coach can be helpful.

Sounds good, I'll see how things work out with my schedule. Definitely good to know that I pretty much can't go wrong if I do get a chance to do the clinic. I've always had good experiences with the instructors at Stowe over the years, so no surprise.

Are you coming tomorrow or was it last week? I am scheduled for Mt Clinic on the 19th. Maybe I'll see you there?

I'm the exception to the rule Josh puts out about every epic instructor teaching that lesson. I teach exclusively in the seasonal program. Just sayin'.

Speaking of, how many of us are there on epic at this point?

Wouldn't be much of a rule if it didn't have an exception.

Was up last week, will be back from 12/27 - 1/4. I'll probably do something then.
