What I'm not comfortable with is bumps. I can negotiate them, but very awkwardly.
I've averaged 10-13 days on snow per year for the last 5 years(when I started). My days out west are precious (not to mention expensive), and I'm really anguished about spending the majority of my ski days trying to figure out bump skiing.
I don't want to learn bump skiing because I think it looks fun, it doesn't to me, but I want to be able to go wherever the hell I want to.
So I guess my question is, will it even be possible for to learn bumps at all? Can a good instructor give me the tools in one or two lessons to be able to progress and be able to manage them? Or do I need to dedicate an entire week?
