I was lucky enough this weekend to get a couple of lessons with skiers who were inspired by the Olympics to learn to ski! Both lessons were with women in their early 40's. What a blast! Both women had been living pretty sedentary lifestyles, but were totally motivated and not afraid! By the end of the first ladies lesson, we were cruising down the intermediate slopes making nice medium radius turns and she was even doing a pretty decent pole touch! The second lady blew me away. She was making rail turns on the intermediate slope and even asked me show her how to ski moguls. Getting them to keep their upper body quiet and hands out front was easier than most lessons because I just asked them to mimic the mogul skiers. I LOVE MY JOB!
