Although I've been mainly lurking for months, I'm off to Whistler soon (22/Jan-5/Feb) - and I've been looking at the lesson options and wondering what to do since we decided to go in October!
I had decided to do Ski Esprit in week 1 and then maybe the Dave Murray or the Supercamp in week 2 (or maybe skip week 2 if money is tight!)
I really want to learn rather than just explore - I've been reading here since I joined, Bob's encyclopedia for weeks and got Lito's book for christmas so my objective is to develop technique rather than bad habits - for that reason I was unhappy to read lisamarie's comments here as that's the kind of thing I want to avoid.
I'm quite new to skiing (about 3 weeks on snow and 20 or so 'coached' sessions on a dry slope). My coach says I'm a mid-level 'advanced' with a bit of an A-frame and I haven't gotten the upper/lower separation bit nailed yet. I guess I'm a level 5 according to the school levels.
I wondered whether the 'supergroup' option with only 3 people may make the Esprit session more suitable?
The Dave Murray camp sounded more 'race' oriented and although I *love* the speed etc I want to be more all-round than that. I suppose I want to be able to go through gates 'cos my technique is good - not just to go through gates and pretend I can really ski!!!
icancruz makes it sound more appropriate though.
Finally the Supercamp option (no-one has mentioned that) sounded really good - but I wondered if I'd need to be a bit more experienced to get the most out of it?
your thoughts and comments would be appreciated
