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.

Thanks!
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!!

I was looking for reviews or trip reports for Stratton or Mount Snow, me and my bf are planning on taking a ski weekend (well he snowboards) to the Kimpton Taconic since his brother is the project manager for Kimpton hotels and can get us rates for $50 a night. I realize snow is further from Manchester, so Stratton is probably our go-to. I've found some really good information on here already. I'm still a super beginner, I took a lesson at Loon in December, but didn't feel like I learned a lot since I had tried snowboarding earlier in the day which wasn't for me. My sister asked if I wanted to take a lesson at our local hill (Powder Ridge in Middlefield) and I said yeah of course.

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, my sister took some convincing in that I had to reassure her we wouldn't be stuck with kids again. 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.

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.

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

LOL. Patrol always gets a bad rap

I found the forum through a thread. Looking for the answer to life, the universe, and how to improve my tele stance on Google.

Back in 2011 I was complaining to my husband that I wanted to go skiing more than he wanted to. He asked why I hadn't looked for friends to ski with online so off I went to see if that was really a thing. I went to Diva West at Big Sky in 2012.

I don't think the instructors realized that we were supposed to be separate, according to the ski school director he had mentioned it to them. I'm glad I ended up getting the second lesson anyways even better than it was free, I wouldn't have been on the actual mountain even if we hadn't gotten mixed in with the kids. I do highly recommend Powder Ridge in Middlefield, CT for anyone that's in the Southern/Central area of CT and doesn't want to drive to Mohawk just for a lesson.

Several years ago I saw a reference to it on another forum (Alpine Zone I think) and checked it out but didn't join then as I still working and short on free time. About 2 years ago I was researching new skis before demoing and remembered the site, started lurking and finally joined.
