Has anyone done Gordy Peifer's Straightline Adventures?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Was thinking of doing a camp to try to take it to the next level, and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this one? It seems a bit pricier than (say) Extremely Canadian at Whistler, which I did a few years back, and have been wanting to do again On the other hand, its new terrain, and maybe a different concept, which could be fun...

 

Any beta?

I have been thinking about doing the JH Steep and Deep, but that is pretty pricey.  This one is a lot less $$.  I am intrigued. I think Dan Egan runs something like this as well.

 

Edit:  I found the Dan Egan CLinic - it is at Big Sky http://bigskyresort.com/the-mountain/mountain-sports-and-lessons/adult-specialty-clinics

Big Sky looks like a fun place to to a steeps clinic (not that Altabird wouldn't be too). Btw, we gotta ski together again one of these years...do you have any idea whether you'll be mostly at Sugarbush or mostly at Stowe this year?

EIther Big Sky or Alta/Bird would be fine!

 

I plan to spend more time in VT this season.  Last year I only skied a few times in the east and at less than great areas: Mt. Snow and Sunape.  This year I plan to keep my schedule flexible and head north when the snow falls.  Stowe, Sugarbush, MRG, Jay Peak are all possible... Probably favor Jay. 

 

Would love to ski with you again.  Can you  make the Northern VT Gathering starting March 20?

I've done Gordy's camp....way back in the winter of 2005-2006 so it is hard for me to remember specifics but I learned a ton and I did think it was worthwhile.

I've been to Gordy's camp twice. The first camp he ever put on and one a couple years later. They split the camp up in several groups, each group having a couple of coaches with them. You'll get instruction through the day and they take a lot of video throughout the day. Most of your instruction will come during video sessions at night. Gordy usually rents a room at the Cliff lodge and video sessions are done there. While watching the video any problems you are having will become apparent. The coaches will work with you the next day to solve these issues.

I had a great time at both camps and would highly recommend attending. Gordy gives a discount to TGR message board members, let him know you are a member when contacting him.

We're interested in doing this too. Do you recall how late in the day your apres-ski video analysis sessions went (if they did that on your camps)? We're staying in Park City with our kids, and would need to make arrangements for them if the sessions do run late. (Have tried emailing the address on the website but it keeps being bounced back to me).
