i really want to go but Ive talked to people and they say the only reason they progress at windells is because the landings are so soft and its warm and that when they get back they don't really do anything on the mountains that they did when they were there? is this just the people i have talked to or is this true? please help. also what you could do before you went and what you can do now?
You get as much as you put in at windells. If you are trying new things you will learn a lot. If you do not push yourself then you won't get as much. Yes it is warm and the snow is soft but that really shouldn't stop you from doing it back at your home mountain. 70 percent of a trick is having the confidence to throw it and knowing that you will stick it.
why go and pay a fortune to have someone teach you something? over half the fun of skiing for me is trying tricks over and over learning by trial and error. plus you could ski the entire summer at hood for that 2 grand easy.
Im looking forward to going this summer! Im gunna deffinetly take it as a learning experience, Im there to learn and to get better so coming back home and not doing everything you learned would deffeat the purpose of going. You have to improve...
it helps if you let it. 2 summers ago i went to windells after my first real year of skiing park. i was still scared to try new stuff, so i didn't. the only thing i really learned was a 360. as i spent the entire summer after camp working to pay it off, i was soooooo mad i didn't push myself. it also didn't help that we missed 2 days of skiing cause of rain.
