Amen! so great to find this post!

A friend wanted me to teach her skiing, I said no because I tried to teach a friend many years ago and she twisted her angle while I went to the lodge for a while.

I worried that she may find me no nice as she maybe want to save some money....after reading this post, I am relieved.

Please make her take a lesson. You know how to ski, but you don't know how to teach. That's what we learn taking CSIA, PSIA, BASI, NZSIA etc courses and certifications. Check up in Gatineau, I'm sure someone is running a first timer package. Lifts, lessons, and rentals for a package price.

oh, man...I just checked the program and pass price of Mont Cascade in Gatineau, it's $324 +tax now. A few years ago it was $175 including tax. That was dirty cheap.

oh, wow, the good old times, and that was just a few years ago! This inflation is killing some people!

Ah Cascades is $121 for a full day rental, lift ticket and 1 hour group lesson. Look for beginner lessons. Calabogie has the best. $89 - Discover+. Lots of beginner lessons out there.
