Hi Swisstrader, welcome to your gateway out of intermediate level hell!
Do you want to hear from...
I can try to be all three but will have to fake most of the "knowledgeable" part
As a student:
I skied for 20something years, was aggressive and hung with the boyz. But I always lacked that edge I wanted to blow past the boyz.
That's when I signed up for ESA Stowe 2006.
ESA was just what the ski chick needed. I have a passion for improvement and the skills to tackle varied terrain that wears out the guys I tend to ski with. I can say I was an intermediate skier a couple years ago and am more like an advanced skier now, with a passion to become an expert, if the expert world will have me
As an Administrator:
ESA has groups for most levels of skiing and can certainly find the right group for you.
As someone who is knowledgeable:
I would like to advise you on the Mt Snow location but I'm not sure about the Geography of that area. I can say that it adds to the vibe if you stay where the ESA crowd is.
I had the BEST Maple Creme' Brulee in Stowe and can highly recommend it!
Does that help?
