Instruction at Alta
Gear mentioned in this thread:
This thread was moved from the snowboarding forum because, well - how do I put this gently? Ah, we don't talk about ski instruction in the snowboarding forum.
Scott Mathers would be a good choice if you could book him.
Check out this related thread:
Arthur Haskell is a Level III instructor who was recommended to me by my local ski shop owner. Art spends the winters at Alta, but is a resident of NC. Based on my experience in recent years with several Level III instructors is assorted places, having a lesson from a Level III instructor is well worth the time and money at any ability level.
He can steer you in the right direction. He's one of their trainers and a former demo team member. Great guy, fun to ski with. I try to look him up when ever I'm in Alta.
