I'm not saying it's easy, John. I'm saying that from the student's perspective, from where I fit in the $$$ equation, I'd prefer to have my choice. and I think that many, many serious "students" of skiing would think likewise.
there aren't many of us profiting from monopoly of ski instruction. I'm surely not one of them. I prefer ESA and Yoda. Both are independent.
the attraction of Harb and PMTS is some indication of dissatisfaction with the PSIA/SSD monopoly, I think. but of course, I could be wrong here.
I wish people like you and the ESA Coaches were able to freelance your work in the way that doctors, lawyers, others can do theirs... either form a "group practice" or "firm", or work independently. It's the American way, isn't it? Independence?
