Oh - that's funny! Javilin turns with the bindings on the very back.
Just goes to show the equipment junkies (me for one) that technique is more important than the equipment.
Well, Sue, Timberline in June is not a ski resort, but a ski rectangle divided into lanes (the "Palmer Snow Field" - (a snow field is just like a glacier except they can call it that because it does not move)).
You know how every loves "powder". At Timberline in the summer, they throw down salt to help keep the melt down (not sure the physics of that, but that's what everyone told me). The goal is to make the slopes as icy hard as possible. If your camp supplies free demo skis, with all the salt they are a great option.
A typical morning, get up at 6, warm up at 6:15, quick breakfast, hit the slopes by 7am. Self practice and warm up runs till 8am. Move over to your assigned "lane" where your camp is being run. Ski till 10am. At 10, "reset the course", which means smooth out the ruts, move the poles/gates a bit, lay out more salt. Wait about 10 minutes for the salt to set (think cement), for the course to get rock hard, then ski till 12. By 12 things get too mushy so its down the hill. At our Masters Camp, each evening was filled with summer sports activities like mountain biking, white water rafting, golf (boring), hiking, windsurfing, often in 90 degree temps.
I highly recommend the summer timberline experience to anyone that hasn't done it. At our camp, there were people that had been coming 13 years in a row. The average was 5 years in a row.
The hotel is a "depression era make work project" work of art, that no one could afford to build a hotel like that now-adays.
Even if your not skiing Timberline Lodge is worth a trip.
Your in for a fun time.
