I Feel Like I Became a Better Skier

January 18, 2017 | Athlete Profile, Programs: Winter, Telling Stories

I wanted to send a quick note just thanking every single instructor that I had yesterday! Every one of them helped in different ways, I think most importantly, giving me the courage and confidence to tackle a harder trail than I have ever skied before….without them, I surely would still be up on that trail!

Bob was fantastic, and I really enjoyed working with him in the morning. Even just skiing with him for a couple of hours, I feel like I became a better skier, no doubt in large part, to Bob.

Brett did awesome taking over for Bob in the afternoon, and Marie and (I apologize…I can’t remember their names…the father/son duo that came in the afternoon) were all super helpful! I became really discouraged at one point in the afternoon, after multiple falls on the same trail, and they were there to mentally pick me right back up again, to help me continue pushing forward.

I really had an incredible day, and look forward to getting back to Pico later in the winter to continue working on my skills! Thanks to YOU for all of your great advice with grants for my own equipment. I look forward to getting back from Colorado and looking into all of the information you gave Dave and I!

I went to Pico to help an old friend (about 7 years ago) learn to bi-ski (I was still a stand-skier at that time), and I’m SO happy to see your program is doing so well this many years later! Every client that I saw on the mountain yesterday had a smile on his/her face the whole day, and that’s a huge reflection of the amazing work that you are all doing for those of us that just want to ski, but need to learn a little differently!

Thank you all again so much. I really had a fun day, and waking up with every muscle being sore is OK in my book, because I progressed in my skills, and had a blast doing it!  Talk soon!

Be well.
