@ tartegnin - I started my 1st adult dev lesson at Liberty this past Sat. and it went well. In fact, I felt very accomplished. They put me and another guy in one group w/ 1 instructor (2 : 1), so we got lots of individual attention. The class took us to the back side of the mtn.: Heavenly, Whitney and Ultra blue trials. We spent the entire day on those blue trials. That was the 1st time I skied on blues at Liberty. Best of all, I managed them all and did not fall or freaked out.
Our class finished at 3 p.m. but I was wiped out well before then. The 2nd last run on the blue, I started plowing again because my muscles were tired. I realized I don't ski as well in the afternoons because of muscle fatigue.
Sounds like quite a good day! When you can ski any blue trail instead of mostly green with a few easy blues, that's when a ski day becomes a lot of fun.
Would you like a few suggestions about exercises that you could consider doing at home? I thinking about sequences that take 15-20 min. Working on core strength and balance can be very helpful in the long run.
