I desperately want to go skiing with my family, but I tried to rent boots on the mountain and I couldn’t find any to fit correctly. My shins (or the front of my ankle where the boot closes?) hurt so badly that I couldn’t ski the second day. That was in December....they want to go again and I turned to Google in desperation. Found you there! Hoping to find some answers so I don’t have to sit out and watch!!Just wondering how everyone came to find this site. Was it through another site like EpicSki or the Ski Diva blog? Did you happen upon it while searching for something else? Or did a friend pass it on?
Post it here; I'd love to know.
Welcome! Good for you for complaining in a constructive way. Ski schools want to end up with happy customers. It's very difficult for an instructor to deal with kids and adults at the same time.Flash forward to our lesson and 2 adults (me, 27 and her, 30) grouped with 10 kids under the age of 8 while there was 5 instructors for the whole group. I put in a complaint to their site, manager called me back and said we were supposed to be separate from them and would a free lesson make it up to you guys? Of course I was all in, . . .
Our second lesson was Saturday where it ended up being a semi-private just the two of us and an instructor. This went so much better, I felt like I actually learned. We worked on wide turns after I skiied wayyy faster than I wanted to on a steeper green, but kept my balance and managed to ski wicked fast, but in control the whole time. We did about 4-5 runs on the two smaller greens in the hour and a half lesson. I'm probably going to do another half day or maybe a lesson at my home mountain before our trip to Stratton to make sure I can handle a larger mountain.
Ski Diva on Epic.
Epic always has some kind of pissing contest going on.
Wanna shake em up, ladies, and give them a CATFIGHT? Hoo hoo! What fun that would be, especially since we won't be serious about it. All our luck, the patrollers will shut it down before the fun happens.:p
