Probably no need to get to know the youngster either? Just do the drills/skills. Get your results. Fun.
If wanting to address the 'other' in skiing, beyond mechanics, the other that is more artistic, creative and external in focus, then esoteric is a good word.
Please know, I'm not mocking. I'm familiar with the Husky program. Lots of good stuff.
However, I anxiously read about ski technique within Epic and wherever I can get my fix. Dry. Mechanical. Movements, not sensations.
I guess when addressing the fundamentals I'm trying to get to the 'point' of it. The essence. Skier, snow and gravity. Awareness.
The sensations/awareness are certainly part of good teaching. I know that some will just be dry, others will be a lot of fun to ski with, and both may not address sensations/awareness at all. I am saying that the instructor/teacher should be more than a party animal and less than an unfeeling drill sargeant.
The instructor should have all the qualities you want from a good teacher. That means getting to know the kids too. You make it easy for them to navigate the progression by setting the curiculum and tests, and allow them to concentrate on the teaching bits.
Like I said, they do it in every school system.
