I can only tell you what my experience was like, but I'm guessing it's pretty universal. I did mine at Eldora a couple of years ago with a couple of my Masters teammates, plus a bunch of paid and volunteer coaches from the Eldo junior program. Everybody passed, but it's kind of a strange thing. You are on snow all day both days, and we had our indoor stuff after skiing the first day. Our clinic leader said "I don't see any problems with anybody's skiing, you all pass the on snow skiing phase." And there was a wide range of abilities. To actually get your L100 certification, though, you need to take I think two online tests, which I never did. I should have, but I just never got around to it. I learned a ton, however, and it was a great experience, and that's really why I went. The takeaways are the Alpine Skills 1 and 2 DVDs, or they were when I took it, and they're worth the price of admission alone. Our evening session, our clinic leader just plugged in the DVDs and walked through them with us so we could understand all the resources available to us, which is the info you need to pass the exams.
I'd say bring both SL and GS skis; we were on GSs the first day, SLs the second. I've seen your posts, I'm sure you'll pass, so just enjoy the experience...

I guess what I am trying to gather is if I can pass on one foot?
