I asked a question a week ago about passion, namely, is it a cynical ploy or an honest attempt to describe what makes us so enthusiastic about snow sports? The answers indicated that this is indeed an honest attempt. I'll buy that, but it leads to a second question: how, then, might instructors "instill" this passion in their students? I must be talking about beginner students, who apparently do not return because they never got the itch that drives the rest of us to choose lovers, where we live, and occupations in order to scratch it. This is a burning issue in the snow sports community, though I have yet to hear or read a solid explanation of how this might be done. Any ideas?
