Hoping to get some recommendations for suitable instructors in Steamboat. I will be there for the month of January. I haven't taken a lesson in a while, but always want to - that said one part of my resistance is getting an instructor who isn't well matched. Here is my basic info - if I leave out relevant info let me know and I'll edit this. I'm a 38 y/o male in pretty good shape and I would consider myself an advanced intermediate skier. I have no macho pretense about skiing at all. I am not interested in bumps or trying to huck off a 40' cliff - ok I am interested but I have a realistic expectation and am in touch with my mortality. Blacks are not a problem - double blacks are pretty challenging. What I'd like to learn: I'd like to get some assessment and correction on my form in general, I'd like to become a much better powder skier (the feeling of powder makes me smile and I think about it ALL year). I'd like to get better in the trees. Here's the thing - I am a good student, I want to learn and I know how to listen. I want and will pay for a real professional. I want someone that is intuitive enough to help me break down what I am doing on a level that helps me "get it" . What I don't want is someone who is going through the motions. I'd like to take 3-4 sessions with an instructor and paying cash is all good. If you can help me get in contact with some folks - that's great. Thanks.
