First step in almost every lesson  is check that the cuffs are buckled correctly. 90% of students equipment is fitted incorrectly so we can improve every lesson by taking the 5 seconds to check boot fit at the start.

What is the bow tie referring to. I have not seen this and was wondering what the movement looks like. Thanks.

 

jeffc7, have you taken your exam yet?  

Best of luck when you do.

Zentune is a flat out ripper and him going through the L2 exam process was akin to bringing a bazooka to a knife fight....

What were the pass/fail ratios for your exams?  Just curious.  Our last two skiing exams have been a bit less than 50/50.

Schweitzer - 3/21/14.  Clear and sunny, 30-40 degrees. Pretty much hero snow.

 

L3: One group of 6 candidates - One person passed both skiing and teaching, one other passed teaching only.  From what I saw and expected that was a correct outcome.  The person who only passed teaching is close on her skiing though.  

 

L2: There may have been two groups but 50/50ish seems about right from what I saw.  Josh (Zentune) could tell you better.

   Yeah, 50% sounds about right...there were quite a few solid skiers in the group of 8 that I was in (skiing portion) and some good teachers that had great progressions prepared for sure. Thumbs Up

 

   As far as the "bazooka" goes, I should've gone for a more "leaf on the wind" approach, but those were the best conditions we had had for arcing all winter, eh GoodSki? Zipdown and Kanisku were fantastic in particular! :skiAll in all, a memorable weekend.
