I am thinking of attending one of the JH Steep and Deep Camps in 2015 but I wanted to get opinions from those that have done it first. I did a search before posting and it seems like a decent amount of people thought that there wasn't enough instruction in the camp, and it was more of a guide experience than a learning experience. Since the camp is $1200 for 4 days of instruction, including lift access, I want to make sure that I'm going to be getting plenty of coaching.
I'm really looking to advance my skiing next season so an intensive camp seems like the best way to do it. However, I'm wondering if I would be better off doing a couple of the full day Mountain X camps instead, which are $210/day with lift access. I could do 4 days of the Mountain X camp and save roughly $400 versus doing the Steep and Deep Camp.
I already booked lodging for JH next year so I'm not really interested in camps at other resorts. FYI, here is the Steep and Deep camp schedule for 2015:
