I learned the hard way, friends telling me to go down a hill, and try to stop myself, and years later, I've found myself teaching people how to ski. I get tired of just teaching people to make it down the mountain and would love to be working (and getting paid) to be in the terrain park more often.
I'm wondering what everyone would think would attract skiers (and, i guess...boarders, since we do give lessons to both) to take freestyle ski lessons AND also what you think should be taught in that lesson or what you would like to get out of a freestyle ski lesson (if you were to take one).
There's a whole PSIA freestyle teaching guide and blah blah blah, which is ok for someone who doesnt know much about park to learn then teach...but as a skier who learned by doing it, I know there are better ways to "teach" park. The freestyle lessons I have tought so far, I've first gauged the skier's capabilities (just to make sure they won't hit a jump and land right on their back) and figured out what they were good at and what needed work, then asked them what they wanted to learn or work on.
Let me know what you think.
