“Teaching skiing for over 40 years has given me the experience to watch literally thousands of skiers of all abilities. The dynamics of body types, physical ability, equipment, terrain, and snow conditions dictates the skier’s experience. It is finding the right balance of these dynamics that makes skiing enjoyable. That is my job, helping people reach that balance.”
