Private lesson with "squatty"... priceless...
The best money spent on the whole trip was the 1/2 day lesson last friday with squatty...with the help of fellow bear, weems, who hooked me up, many thanks...if any one is planning a trip to aspen/snowmass, you need to give their ski school a call. Total professionals, committed and
passionate ski instructors...weems runs a first class outfit.
I can now appreciate what all you instructors have
saying all year long....to improve you need lessons! You (instructors) may think alot what you post goes un-heard, but take it from the other side, your imput on this forum is heard and listen to, many thanks and can't wait to get back on the slopes (later this month) and have another lesson.
To fellow intermediate bears...IMHO the most cost effective money spent on this trip was those lessons. The amount of improvement that i achieved from lessons can not be done by just time spent skiing...if you want enlightenment in your skiing, please take a lesson...these guys will help you..

I've been saying that for years & I am not an instructor.... seriously would you go teach yourself to skydive? or fly a plane? would you throw kids in water & let them learn to swim on own(only the fit survive)...why do people want to teach selves to ski... I don't get it...

It is easy. But getting there takes coaching as there are so many pitfalls along the way. I get so much coaching every year, and every year the skiing gets better for me.

I'm thrilled that cagin had such a good time. He and Squatty were a perfect match. Cagun is from Loosiana, and Squatty is an ultimate good ol' boy. When we can we try to match like this. But we also work on the pros' abilities to shift themselves to match many kinds of people.

Squatty Schuler is a brilliant instructor who is enormously influential in our training programs--both at AspenSnowmass and in PSIA-RM.

He is also typical of the new generation of instructors who have a wonderful balance between skiing, teaching, and caring skills.

Thanks Cajun dood for your visit! Come back and see us when you can.
