Questions, questions....  oh, and I doubt that you've wasted 3 years of your life. I'm sure you're a much stronger skier that when you began. Most people are if they're trying hard.

 

I might hang out and ski, or see some friends in Vancouver instead... the feedback was that I would have to make significant changes before the exam. Stance&balance related (I bend at the waist in short radius turns rather than ending the turn with forces driving through the heel, which also affects my bump skiing). You're right that it wasn't really 3 wasted years, though I'm pretty disillusioned with the ski instruction industry right now. (It's actually been 5 years that I've been training for the 3.) The thread on "learning is easy!" isn't helping. 

 

But the snow was good.

Any GS ski will suck in bumps, skill can compensate for it a lot, but at the end of the day there are soooo many better options.
