Thought more folks would bite on this. I know keeping secrets and not giving up the goods is part of the skiing culture but hey these are our very own beginner bear buds here...let's go now! Give it up!!!

I am sure many beginner bears from the east ski and love Bretton Woods so I will use that venue for my next very important tip. The Minuteman lift at Wachusett provides another venue where this tip works.

The main quad loads just to the left of the base lodge at BW. It is a center lane que, meaning the lift attendants load groups of four from the left and the right of the center line.
Again, as always think about splitting your group and using the singles line.
In lieu of the singles line, skate around the que feeding from the chair's left to the que which will feed from the right facing the chair.
It usually has half as many people in line. All the lemmings feed from the que nearest the lodge.
So the tip is, again don't be a lemming take a look at any lift que that feeds from 2 sides. One side is often half as many folks in line as the other.
Meaning you ski a lot more.
The other good thing is you get to practice and become very efficient at skating on your skis.
See Lito's Breakthough on Skis I and III for a detailed explanation on why skating is such a huge skill builder. You should be skating on flat terrain all the time vs poling or gliding.
hey, I guess that leads to another tip. If you have tired of the free demo team videos you've clicked on and viewed in my signature www.amsao.it
you can go to www.breakthroughonskis.com
and spend a few bucks for the 2 best ski instructional videos (IMHO of course) ever done...breakthrough 1 and III.
Of course, if you are frugal like me you can also go to www.snowproab.com
and view free canadian demo team videos. Also very nice.
If you have some bucks you can also go to an ESA and hang with our epic stars like weems and nolo. I can't afford it, maybe you can.
C'mon let's get going with some more beginner tips!!!
