This is a genuine Ebay offering. I am a professional ski instructor based in Banff, Alberta Canada. You can visit my website www.theskicoach.com or call me on: 403 760 2749.

I am only interested in offering my services to Members of Royal Familes, Presidents or Heads of State, Famous Rock Stars or Famous Actors/Actress's or multi-millionaires who make regualar contributions to charitable donations.

Why such an elite crowd? Well, I want to make our world a better place and I need the help of folks who are well known or people who have the power to make changes happen.

The starting bid price for my ski services is $4000 ( 4 hours of instruction) + expenses.

90% of the bid price will either go to a charity of your choice or will be distributed evenly amougst the following Foundations.

Clinton Founation

Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

Omidyar Foundation

The remaining 10% will help me to stay involved with a sport I am passionate about and to continue to promote my cause to help others.

What do I offer you in return?

I will guarantee you a skiing experience that will last a lifetime; you will have fun, adventure and will vastly improve your skiing.

Thanks.

Chris

This so weird, on so many levels.. I'm speechless.
Though I'd like to know what he's smoking and where I can get some...

Whats wrong with it? Sounds like an innovative way to help people. Kudos to Ski Coach.

Nothing wrong.
Of course, the idea that head of states or rock stars may hire a skicoach on eBay (the elite crowd is addicted to ebay) because he patented a blinging gizmo to put on your shoulders, may sounds ... optimistic. Self infatuated maybe. Innovative, for sure. But your mileage may vary...

that pmts can do all this and more with just a little toe action

4k does seem a little much to pay to hear the satisfying "click" of the "ski coach" sliding into place.

...actually, for those who don't know the backstory, the above sentence could be misinterpreted. But the misinterpretation might not be so far off the mark, at that...

go for it

I agree. innovative. The interesting part to me is that he looks like he is going to take a digger in the photo.

You'd think he would have put a less spastic photo of himself.

90% to charity, pretty cool.

And for the record. Yuki has taught and coached more than my share of Royalty ...

If I had a $1 for every one that was a Royal Pain in The Adz ...

If I were "royalty," I'd just pay $400 for the lesson, donate the money myself, and take the tax deduction. Duh.

I do know (and have skied with) several royals, heads of state, and various captains of industry... and they don't book through Ebay.

This guy has stuffed his pipe once too often!

At least he's on the ball enough to keep paying his domain name bill! So you going to buy back your site?

huh. He's young. Sadly, for that money and rap, the payers are going to expect instant results and we all know those don't come without some effort from the subject.

I have no need to buy back my old site... I let it go!

Unless you missed it, after more than 40 seasons as a fulltime instr/coach, I am out of the game... I am no longer full time in the ski biz, just a 14 dayer, while living in "gasp" Houston, TX, making the most of my new career.

I'll keep my foot in it, just for fun, and the few bene's I still get out of being affiliated with Vail.
But the few days I teach are all with pre-existing clients. So no need to advertise and no need for a website...

I have to admit- it's kind of nice not HAVING to put boots on every morning, knowing that if I don't work today it will cost me hundreds of dollars on my paycheck.
Now I work about 5 days a month, and get paid more than when I worked 28 days a month... better bene's, and I love this job just as much as I loved teaching skiing...

(not to mention this one is much less physically debilitating)

After more than 6000 days on snow, I think my feet have earned a rest .....
