(cough, cough, ahem) Is this on? Thank you.
With all due respect to Ebough, a week is plenty of time to "get better". It's even enough time to achieve dady8tor's goal of "seriously improve my skills". The stated goals are to carve on steeper terrain and be able to handle more difficult moguls, with a possible learn to ski deeper powder thrown in. Yes, a single two hour lesson is probably not going to do it. Yet I do have students make breakthroughs (aha moments) in one hour privates every year. It's not likely, but it happens. Given dady8tor's self description and the boot fix, there's a very good chance that a week long camp can hit at least 2 out of the three goals. I've been attending week long PSIA/AASI events that are equivalent to camps for years now. I've walked away from every one with at least one "serious" improvement.
Dady8tor's self description does not match up to a single digit handicapper. My guess would be more like a teens handicapper: good but not very good. At this level you are missing some of the fundamentals that can be applied across all shots. Build just one of those fundamentals, and you can significantly change the results. At this level, a single improvement in putting, short game or driving alone can knock 3 strokes off. Last year, with 10 lessons, I went from a 21 to a 12. Yes it can take time and practice to lock in the results. In golf, it can take a while for the results to impact the handicap. In skiing, once you know "how", it does not matter how long it takes to lock it in. Mentally, the result has been achieved.
Anyone at any age or skill level can have an "aha" moment. Even though my hit rate is under 10%, I strive for this with every student. Even at <10%, it happens a lot.
