Well worth watching the entire video all at once, it's 26 minutes. The mom is 60 and grew up skiing in Ontario. Her son is a great guide. Sounds like she had done the runs before, but in worse conditions.

It is good to hear about options for older skiers. I am 75 and still enjoying skiing very much. I really enjoyed the ski diva trip to Steam Boat Springs last year. I also took several morning clinics for intermediate to advanced skiers at Palisades Alpine and learned a lot. I like skiing with others and lately have found myself with fewer ski buddies. It has been great to meet ski divas to ski with. If you are coming to Palisades or North Star let me know as I would love to meet up with you. I have a lovely chalet in Tahoe City that often has extra spaces. If I am staying there we just share cleaning and utility expenses. If I am not there it is for rent on VRBO and Airbnb, I posted it in the conversation on sharing ski rental houses. I am interested in skiing with others who are advanced intermediate skiers. I especially like steep groomers. I am also open to skiing other places. I have both an EPIC and an IKON pass this year. Let me know if you want to meet up.

Are you going to join in for Diva West 2025? The skiing will mostly be at Alta in late January. I could introduce you to whoever from the Wild Old Bunch is around that week.

Have you skied the groomers at Snowbird? Can be fun for people who like steep groomers. Not much fun for cautious intermediates who are uncomfortable on cat tracks though.
