    Five New Guests to Play With At Nosal!

    We had 5 new guests arrive yesterday, today was their first day on the slopes and their first Sunshine experience! A few of the team met them at a local bar last night for a few drinks and last we saw of them they were headed for another club at 11 and from what I heard they had a very late one! After dropping the team off at Nosal I drove to pick up the fearsome five. Half an hour off waiting later they were finally ready, dazed as they were, and we set off to grab their rental gear.

    The group consisted of 3 skiers and 2 boarders and apparently they were all of decent standard. After they were geared up I took the three skiers for a quick ability test on the biggest beginner slope to see where they were at. Two of them breezed down it with no problems at all but the last guest fell several times and was generally having a really hard time. I decided to split the three into two groups, taking the least able then and there and the more advanced guys later on, after lunch.

    I took the first guest for about an hour and 20 minutes, going through the basics again (apparently he had only done one lesson years ago, and then been taught by friends) to give him solid foundations and then moved on to parallel progression side-slipping, hockey stops, lifting the inside ski and hop-turns. After the lesson was done I went up with the boarders and TJ for a couple of runs down the black, very good fun!

    After lunch I met the two remaining skiers at 2:30 for their advanced lesson, I could tell in the morning by how much they were edging that they were both a very high standard. We did a couple of warm-up runs down the red to check out what they could do and they were both awesome, I was really impressed! One thing I picked up on was that they weren't rotating their skis all the way around and therefore were constantly accelerating during the run unable to turn by the bottom.

    To counteract their unaggressive turning we did a lot of work on flexion and extension, this allowed them to release pressure to bring the skis round and to build pressure to achieve wicked grip and drive the skis through the end of the turn. They loved it! Immediately they both grasped the concept and, after watching me do a pitch of very short turns, exaggerating my flexion and extension, were both able to improve their speed control and general performance by leaps and bounds! Awesome!

    After covering a bit of carve progression and work on a more balanced, yet agile form, everyone was happy and ready to get back home for the day. We grabbed everyone's gear and headed back to the Sunshine Chalet. Another great day complete!
