I don't want to get off on a tangent, but it has occurred to me that this gathering of the Bears in 2003 could be the bleeding edge of a new thing or phenomenon: the self-organizing clinic. It could be the answer to the age-old question of how to make coaching more attractive to intermediate and advanced skiers.
1) Regularly scheduled camps where numerous coaches and learners from the community attend.
2) Individual travels to various resorts where members can work with Epic coaches.
3) Local coaching for those fortunate enough to be near one of the Epic coaches.
One of the things that would really make this stand out would be to have some commonality in approach and methods although this may be extremely difficult with such a diverse group. I know, let's just have everyon follow the PMTS manual.
(PLEASE, I'M ONLY JOKING!)
Anyway, I think Nolo is really onto something here.
So how about it, anyone else think the Barking Bears Ski School is a good idea?
