free one day camp! Spring allmountain Ski Camp with the Bushman!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 

Ok so here is the plan, since I am officially done for the year with my current ski school. I was thinking about doing a free to anyone who shows up clinic at one of the local resorts. The resort will most likely be Seven Springs, but Wisp and Timberline could be in the works.

The things I need from the forum members is an idea of interest level if any at all. I would also like to be PMed with as honest as you can be with your skiing levels and goals. Its free but want to try to set this up so people can have fun and learn something. friends are welcome as well

as long as I get a few interested who ever shows up will get free coaching from me. 

The dates will be the 29th of March, location TBD (90 percent sure it will be springs).

If you been struggling with spring snow, want to learn how to really ski bumps, or just become a better skier. You simply can not afford to pass this up. Free all day coaching with a top level coach.

 

BTW if there is enough interest and seemingly different abilty levels/goals I could add saturday as well.

Are you at Tline on 3/22?

post #3 of 28

There's a pretty good chance I could be there if it's at Springs.

 

I'll be up there tomorrow also if you are around.  Putting my almost 5 yr old in ski school for the day so I'll be skiing whatever is still open all day.

I would like to attend.  Nevermind the funny bindings, I'm sure most if not all of the skills you will be teaching can be applied to my skiing. Thanks!

post #5 of 28

I'd love to attend, and that's incredibly generous of you to offer such a clinic. I'll PM if I can work the travel from NYC to western PA.

 

I think anyone who does attend owes this newly level 3-certified dude lots of beer and food after the camp!

post #6 of 28

I'll follow this post and see if I can make it. I'd love to get some more pointers from you.

no I am not ill be at spring bashing bumps with the bump crew there.

 

thanks for the interest so far guys!

post #8 of 28

Sounds like a really fun event.

 

Anytime people get the opportunity to learn something about bump skiing, you should go for it.

 

I've skied bumps with Bushwacker, you could learn much from him.

 

I'd love to help out but the timing isn't right. Got some family comittments.

 

Remember, stand tall.

well springs is out.....they arent opening.

 

so Timberline or Wisp.

 

I greatly prefer timberline but if alot more can go to wisp than wisp it is.

Looks like there's a Happening-BBQ bumpfest a brewing at Holiday next week.

 

Maybe you can give me some lessons BWPA.

 

There is a chance of a suprise new bumper strutting his goods also. If not, he'll be with some good looking chicks anyhow.

helva skiing bumps! I know how fun that could be/ on dcski.com there is some interest in timberline so Ill probably see you guys a in a couple weeks.

post #12 of 28

I think we're talking about the 5th of April BW.

 

You in for that?

post #13 of 28

I'll be there this up-coming weekend as well as the 5th. I'll get a thread started for the 5th. Those who want to see a racer hack his way through some bumps won't want to miss this one...

post #14 of 28

Good skiers can handle anything Heluva.

 

I'm sure you will impress.

 

reguardless, it's all about fun anyhow.

post #15 of 28

I'd be interested in attending but 6.5hrs is a long way to drive for PA skiing.

Easy solution - pay his lodging and gas and do it at Huntah.

post #17 of 28

Hunter would be a great venue for this.

 

I have left my house bound for a late season day trip to Timberline and instead of turning left onto the beltway, kept going north. I had tried to talk a few people into going skiing, but I ended up solo and the last minute change of plans early in the trip proved a wise one. Hunter is so much better than Timberline and it's not much farther from here. Don't drive to WV, Richie, there is no challenging lift served terrain in WV. Most PA ski areas have short pitches that are steeper than anything in WV. 

 

Josh, I think a mid-atlantic location is your plan. Hunter would be great, but I'm planning on going to your free clinic wherever it will take place, unless they are calling for rain there Sunday.

you actually like wisp over timberline?

 

timberlines not really steep but the runs are longer than anything at wisp.

post #22 of 28

I would probably have fun in any weather, but I can't see renting a car and driving 8 hours to ski in the rain. Thanks anyway.

post #27 of 28

This weekend will define the hardcore and you and I sitting it out because of rain. You're getting old too, old and jaded. There's always next weekend to redeem yourself. One last Timberline weekend.

 

Save the Whales.

 

 

 

 

 

Somebody has got to rat him out, perhaps shame him into doing whats right next weekend. Truth is only a freezing night and sunny day to play will get us three to T. I give you, TaylorM___

It did go, BWPA, PASucks & jimmy got soaked in other words it was a great day for skiing, prolly too wet for pictures tho. Snow was good clinic was better. I showed up with a stronger outside edge and the beginning of a pole touch that wasn't there last time, left with fundamentals to take into the bumps and learn to ski them. How's that saying go if you can't ski bumps it's because you can't ski????? it's not so easy learning to ski bumps in the bumps, i know now the best place to learn to ski bumps is on the groomer. I made some progress, each run felt like i was more in control than the last, skiing instead of making survival turns. Lot's to work on. Josh & Jeff thanks for coming down and skiing with me. Yunz who missed it, well......
