how long did it take for you to transition from grooomers to fresh dumps, mounds, ungroomed runs (admittedly in the beginning it is a bit unnerving...at least it was for me).
..trying to tame that animal this yr.
feel free to offer any quick ramp up tips.
I ask because I'm trying to evolve this yr to become a good intermediate for all types of conditions/terrain (except moguls...not at my 48 yrs age)...i spoke with the head coach of whistler's club linc (about 40 skiers meet each sat over 20 wkends starting in november) and he says most of his skiers (many returning) can ski all mtn (not me..yet), and not just blue/black lite groomers (that's me...at least for now)....but regardless that I should just come out and try it for a few sessions anyway as there are different groups of varying ability. (so i'm hoping to get out 2x/wk at my local hill then join them at whistler each Sat and hope after a few sessions they'll keep me on board)....
at the very least if it doesn't work out I can always move over to the summit series (full day class about $80/day with my discount) to have some company and get some skill improvement with an instructor in a group setting (they have an unlimited summit series' pkg this yr for $970...(not including lift tickets...that price is just for the instruction as many times as you want to take a full day class.
and this year I will be in better shape mentally and physically and with more appropriate skis.
just ordered this program too from a gal in the fitness forum:
