hrstrat, Level II is the highest I think I'll attain in this lifetime and that will probably take me a couple of years. I got "Exceeds Standards" on my Teaching Skills and "Exceeds Standards" on Professional Knowledge, but only "Meets Standards" on Skiing Skills, of course it was Spring conditions which made my skiing a bit worse.
Bong, I would TOTALLY LOVE to come out and train in CO for my LII.
Snowbowler - the pipe was great, no big deal really, just skiing. I only got about 1/2 to 3/4's of the way up the wall, but it was just making a turn with the snow pushing against your skis. Not at all scary (but pretty darn fun!) Of course in this case the spring conditions worked in my favor.
Good thing I was put with the young group of candidates due to an imbalance of numbers, because the older group, that I should have been in, never went near the pipe.
