I have been working with my daughter on skiing she is 5. This is her second season at Perfect North. This week I spoke to an instructor about getting her to use edges on turning learn to carve and do a hockey stop. I also want her to be able to check speed better using her edges on steeper blue terrain as well as get to the black terrain this season. I did not tell her the black terrain lol she would have thought I'm nuts. She did give me a crazy look and told me 5 year olds were not gonna be able to do that. I said ok and booked lesson. After a few runs she was amazed that my daughter was starting to use edges and could not believe the ability. She told me skip there doodles kids program and encouraged me to get her into race program next year for more advanced instruction as she is past the level of the doodles instruction. I am fine with that idea and she is excited to do that next season but imo I have another 4-6 weeks that I can get her instruction this season. I am wondering if there are any advanced instructors in the region that I could hire outside of the race programs for one on one lessons? Any recommendations on this?
As much as I believe Perfect North has great lesson programs and can help beginners grow and become comfortable I do not believe right now there standard instructor is going to be able to maximize my kids ability. Hell she even said that when saying go to advanced race program. I need help to get her going this season. I am only a second year skier and can only do so much. I do not want her to have bad habits.
Thanks for the help. I live in Cincinnati area but could be willing to travel to mad river or other areas for qualified instruction. I am really hoping not to have to go to rocky mountains lol.
