OK, straight up honesty here....first time skiier and I was SO SCARED i was actually shaking. My first down trying to get down the magic carpet ended in me yelling "help" and crashing. and it hurt. And I made very good friends with the bench. Enter Rich. Sits beside me and asks why i'm best friends with the bench. he then sees the state I'm in, says "This is supposed to be fun! come with me....." after a few laps with his big stick and lots of words of encouragement, by 3pm I was on skiis, with poles and getting down that little magic carpet area. my hubby and the 2 kids were LOOONG gone having moved on by noon. Rich, Frank and John were so patient with me, I was a first class wuss. I think everyone knew my name because all I heard was "WHERES HELEN?" every 10 minutes because Mr Rich was making sure I was not getting reaquainted with that bench ;-) When the family all got together after lessons we ALL had great things to say about all the instructors we had each had. For those skiiers who are natural....and not scared.... they were off doing slopes and getting good instruction. I was mad at myself for freaking out so much but I couldnt help it....and the guys were amazing with me. Cant rave enough about them. And yes - we will go again and I'll try and do better without the big stick!
