I have been skiing since I was like 3 or 4 years old (Im 17 now), but I stopped skiing from when i was 9 years all the way to last season. I got a normal pair of downhill skis last season and then within a month, I dropped more money on a set of park skis. I probably spent close to 40 full days at my home resort. I learned all sorts of grabs, and I can spin super consistent 1s and not so consistent 3s. I also suck at rails. Im going to improve a ton this season. I am an above average skier and very comfortable on my skis and pretty good at switch skiing. I applied to my local resort and got a job as a ski instructor. Im getting my level 1 certification very soon as well.
Any tips for a beginner instructor?
