I've taken a few lessons in my time. Skier ability in most schools is usually rated from 1 - 9. I've been to an ESA camp and one other high profile camp.My ability puts me in the middle of the pack in these camps. When I take an "adult group lesson" the first thing they do is divide up the class by skill level and I'm usually put with those in the 8/9 groups. How can this be? If I'm an 8/9, what are the folks who are in the ESA class that are skiing the steeps and flying around like fighter jets while I'm motoring quietly down some typical black slopes, but not the truly most difficult stuff? Why would I be listed as an 8/9 skier in a group lesson and nowhere close to the top at an ESA camp? I know I'm not an 8/9. Why does the ski school keep labeling as one?
