Any tips, thoughts, suggestions from those that have been there?
How do they approach putting you into groups? I'm just thrilled to be there, but would like to do the good stuff.
I've never really rated myself, but reading the PSIA criteria, I'd put myself at a solid 9. I won't be straightlining any chutes by any means, and don't huck any drops (self-preservation) unless its required to drop into something and there's no hazards (cliff, rocks) below. I've skied all the steeps of Mammoth, Taos, Telluride, Snowbird, and Alta, and have only turned away from Corbet's in JH due to the conditions. The drop-in freaked me out. I don't have any backcountry experience.
Based on the above, do you think I can hang on the mountain or with most of the skiers there?
