Heading to Sugarloaf in a couple weeks and considering private lessons for the wife. She's two days out of being a never ever. Pretty much still on the bunny hill. She does well enough but had a rough knee popping backwards fall to end her first day which has left her hesitant of skiing since (scared crapless may be a better term). I'm thinking a 2-3 hour one on one (if she's up for it!) would do wonders for her confidence and enjoyment of the trip. Also we all know teaching our spouse Skiing (or Paddling, Golf, and Stick Shift) can be a marriage limiting move so I'd like to remove myself from the equation. =D
But the problem is I have no idea who's a good instructor at Sugarloaf! Man or woman would be fine, just have to be great. I've had instructors who made me not like skiing that day (which is saying a lot) and her being stuck with a bad one might mean she'll never want to touch skiing again. =P
So I turn to you guys, who would you guys suggest for helping someone go from skittish -> silly grin?
