A fun Throwback Thursday video:
My first year working at Deer Valley, I was a videographer (NOT! a ski instructor).
Best compliment/insult I got that year? “You ski like a really good PATROLLER. It’s all wrong, but you look great doing it”
After becoming an instructor and pursuing certification… that comment is all the more funny, because I see exactly what they mean!
Just goes to show- there’s plenty of fun to be had even if your technique isn’t great… that’s one of my favorite things about skiing! As I became more and more focused on technique, a lot of the fun got lost… but now that I’m out of the biz, and only ski a couple times each year… damn I have a lot of fun again!
