Thank You all....regarding NJ place

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all,
Our trip was excellent. We spend two days at Mt. Peter and we absolutely loved it!!!!

(With regards to http://forums.epicski.com/showthread...ghlight=ndp125)


We all made it early (yes all you guys were right it did get crowded later on) and we were able to make the most of it.

Got couple of lessons.
Now we did get a high school kid but it was okay. Next time we requested for an experienced teacher and we got one .

On a different note:It appeared that one or two people at the registration desk were little less polite and helpful (mildly putting it). Always a sharp no (you can't do that) or yes. We had called once and talked to one of the members on the phone who answered all our questions, very helpful and also assured us that everyone is a certified instructor. Furthermore, we were also given the assurance that we can put in your request for level II instructor.

Now we reach the place and when we mention we wanted a level II

"No"
that's just not possible.

Can we get a Certified Instructor
"No chance" You get what we have. Trained High School kids

(You get the idea...)

But anyway...after all that...it was a lot of fun!!!
On the snow we had a very flexible main guy co-ordinating all the trainers. It was just a lot of fun!!!!

We only got achance to practice the wedge turns...as we all needed to work on them (Better to perfect them then to keep learning new stuff right!!).
So played on the deer slope got very confident with the wedge turns.

Next time...start with parallel turns and using the ski lift....!!!!!

I hope you write a note to the place complaining about the fact that the person on the phone tells you one thing and you get there and it's suddenly another thing...

I'm glad it worked out. Sorry about the "less polite and helpful" part of the experience - seems par for the course in the northeast but that's a different topic entirely.
