So that is 55-58 days depending on when they close. Good deal if you can make it work, the blackouts make it kind of tricky though

How many lessons would it take to make it worthwhile? I can ski just about anything on the mountain depending on conditions but certainly not smoothly and gracefully. Would the intermediate/expert group lessons help me, or be a little slow for me if I'm already skiing almost anywhere on the mountain? I'd particularly like to improve my skiing in steep bumps and tightish trees.

Since the deadline is now I signed up. It`ll be interesting too see how much 10 group lessons can improve my technique, especially being entirely self taught.

It depends on how open you are to constructive criticism and maybe backing off the steeper terrain for a time to learn different movement patterns.

I have participated in this program and have improved tremendously. Hint: The level 9 groups are not always the best skiers. Get to know the instructors and choose your group based on who is teaching not what level it is.

Does anyone know whether it is still possible to enroll at this late date?
It sounds like a great program. I only wish I had known by September 30.

You should call the school and ask, but no, should be too late. It is a great program. See you next season I hope.

I did call, and I am SOL.
