Hell no! It was an "eat up as much powder in 2 hours as we can" type lesson. That was when I discovered that in deep powder, terminal velocity is just above the comfortable speed, and makes it 10x as intense. I basically follwed his blurry (from the snow blown up by his skis) shape though the trees and over the drops. Some of those drops were over 15 feet! I think the only tip he gave me was "make bigger turns". I don't know if he knew if just follwing him would be best for me or if he just wanted to enjoy a powder day! I don't know his name, he was a fairly young guy.
