Hey, SCSA (teaching)

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I've thought about this a bit. You really need to start teaching. If you are passionate about PMTS, this would be a good outlet. Believe it or not, IN PERSON, SCSA is a highly charismatic and caring individual. He's also hilarious. I know, nobody would think I would ever say that!!!
Think about it!

Those are kind words and I thank you.

If I did it, it'd have to be right. It'd have to be with skiers who are really dedicated to the sport. The last thing I want is some dork following me around all day - no matter how much I'm getting paid.

Then, there's the whole problem of the ski area. If they find out you're getting paid to ski, they come after you - it really sucks. Now, if no money changes hands, that's different.

And, there's no way I'd ever join the gang and work for the man. It just ain't me.

Thanks again and cheers to us!

Wow, that's a great idea! Never thought about it that way!

Actually, it's not a bad idea. What about A-Basin, Part time there, SCSA? We'll talk about it on Friday...

I think it would be good for you for a LOT of reasons!

SCSA is a great guy in person and I think he would be a wonderful teacher.

It will improve your skiing to teach skiing.

Ya think HH or any other coaching professional thinks like this ?

Try out for part time new hire next year at Vail. The experience will be a rewarding one both personally and for your skiing.

Now Rusty's all nice.

Something's up, I'm sure of it. I think him and Barnes are planning an attack.

Him and I have sure gone sideways.

You're right. Damn. I'm gonna miss you.

But there's no way I'm working for the man - I'm unemployable.

Who is The Man? We have always called the IRS the "Man" . . . can't blame anybody for now wanting to work for him!

SCSA- You're a strange bird. I think I've been nice to you for a long time.

I disagree with the teachings of HH and PMTS, however, he and Diana are two of the nicest people that I have ever met.

I can seperate my thoughts and my emotions. I simply get a little tired of your PMTS drumbeating and your insistance on trying to convince all of us of your "all mountain prowess". I have said this so many times that I grow weary. I have always had great things to say about your skiing and your dedication to the sport.

I think you would make a tremendous instructor.

Me, a strange bird?
I'll take that as a compliment!

You have a point when you elude to that I've tried to stuff my training down people's throats. And, telling them what they're doing is wrong. I thought I was getting better about this and I'll be much more aware of it in the future.

Many thanks for the heads up and cheers to us!

If you ever decide to teach, you will discover rule #1: not everyone is created equally. It does not matter what method you teach, how you teach or how often you teach. Some folks will never reach advanced (much less expert) skiing no matter how hard you (or they) try.

If we could be successful at any activity we tried, we would all be created quite equally. Clearly that is not the case.
So despite the promise, I am convinced that not everyone can be an expert skier!

Don't tell anyone else I said this, but guess what?

I agree with you.

LOL, who put in the parenthesis after my topic header?? Was someone afraid this was a flame thread???!!! [img]smile.gif[/img]

I agree with most of what you say - no matter what, I'll never be an expert skier, but for the successful bit, it's all relative, and compared with my relatives, I'm a successful skier! [img]smile.gif[/img]

What I mean is, I have my definition of success for me. I will never win an Olympic medal, but that doesn't mean I'm not successful, it just means I'm not as successful as some.
If I enjoy a ski trip, then it has been successful. If I have learned anything on it, and improved as a skier, then I have been successful.

OK, I'm being really pedantic today, but I just wanted to add that bit. If we set our own targets and meet them, then we are successful.
