After another great Level III Clinic today at my home mountain, I think that, combining several influences from different ski schools is the answer. I was fortunate enough to teach under Chris Ryman many years ago - that was pretty damn close to perfect. And, regarding tipping, I am in agreement 100% Tipping has gotten OUT OF CONTROL. In our lockerroom, it seems that the instructors rate a successful day by the $$ in their pockets, not what happened on snow. I, on the other hand, have a great day when I come down with a grin on my face - whether it's from getting a first time skier to the chairlift, to snowblading in the trees with a 12 year old level 9. Life doesn't get much better, eh?
