My wife, my son, and I are taking a half-day private at WP the last week of February. Can anyone recommend an instructor?
(Edit for concision.)
Quite sure that an epicski handle. Hopefully someone will chime in with a real name for you.
If Rusty isn't available, I took a group lesson with an older guy named Buck, can't remember the last name. He was quite good. Got me (easterner) feeling comfortable handling deep snow and then steeper cut up soft crud.
Thanks for the recs, guy. Rusty Guy (his real name) is booked for the day. Buck (last name still unknown) no longer teaches, but his wife, Joy, does, and she's "awesome," according to the guy at the ski school desk, so Joy it is.
(Auspicious name, Joy.)
Good luck, and enjoy! I had a blast at Winter Park.
