Locals Know Why Ski School is Cool
Ski School just doesn't sound cool. There, I said it!
Flight School definitely sounds adventurous (Tom Cruise in Top Gun flashed before you, admit it) and, even Culinary School sounds exotic (Anthony Bourdain definitely helped there). It’s not the ski-part of it. We love to ski! It conjures images ranging from the adrenaline-seeking to the stylish (or, in Lindsey Vonn’s case, both). But suggest going to Ski School, and folks will look at you like you just sentenced them to three days of Driver’s Ed. Come on! Ski school is not remedial or punitive — just the opposite. It is designed to take you to the next level: to get you on more-challenging runs or, especially in Utah, into the powder or backcountry. Now, that sounds pretty cool. Here are a few things Utah locals teach and preach about ski school.
