#3: Better Skiers Have Even More Options
Just because you can cook an omelet, doesn’t mean you can make a souffle, and it is a whole lot easier, and you’re more likely to do it again if someone shows you how. The same applies to ski school.
So many skiers and snowboarders get stuck at a certain level. They spend years of spring breaks heading down the same blue runs. They tell themselves it is because they like those runs but, often, there’s a worry that they’ll look down a particular slope and think, “It is too steep or too narrow, has too many trees or too many moguls or...Why in the world is that big rock there?”
Lessons can address issues or unlock fears that open up incredible new experiences (no, your otherwise-wonderful boyfriend or spouse cannot teach you, and lessons are cheaper than the resulting couples therapy). Look for specialty clinics available at Utah resorts grouped by: (1) type, such as: skiers, snowboarders, telemark, women, men, teens, special needs, seniors, experts, lapsed; or (2) terrain, including: moguls, trees, backcountry, sidecountry. At the top of Utah, Cherry Peak Resort has offered evening skills clinics focusing on improving particular skills. You’re skiing some of the world’s best terrain in Utah. Learn to ski all of it!
