WHO WOULD BENEFIT?

TellurideMountain.jpg

Both Male and Female adult skiers are equally welcome and mutually benefit from participation.

A focused Private lesson like this would suit you if you are a good Intermediate skier, who is frustrated by your lack of progress or improvement.

You might have been an Intermediate skier for some time now, but your progress has somehow stalled and you never seem to get any better no matter what you do. You've hit the wall!

You love the sport and would like to ski more efficiently and in control, whether you choose to venture into ungroomed territory or not!

You might have tried to force yourself to ski tougher terrain like small moguls, shallow powder or other un-groomed slopes hoping you'll "get used to it".  Some might think they are capable of handling it. Sometimes a few get away with it to a certain extent using brute strength or sheer determination, but most do not for a sustained period.

Some students are strong and aggressive; others are not. However, they ALL realize something is missing and something is wrong.  Others already know they are not ready for any tougher terrain and are wise enough not to go there, Sound familiar?

But BOTH groups have to work much harder when taken into advanced ungroomed terrain. Strength alone is not the answer, nor is exposure, practice, 'miles under the skis', high confidence levels, or being super aggressive (even though all these will help).

The answer is to acquire the necessary SKILLS to take you where you want to go. Would you like those skills?

Howard offers both Men and Women a friendly,
systematic, supportive process to ensure you
change your skiing for the better.

By attracting skiers of the same level and
stage of development, and forming them into
small Private Lesson groups, instruction can
focus on one core objective instead of
differing personal goals.

It then becomes a fun, cooperative,
supportive, enjoyable few days within
a group of equally focused people where
ski improvement is virtually assured.

Once you realize that despite increased
confidence and familiarity, you have:-
a) hit the "end of Intermediate" wall.
b) your skiing refuses to progress,
then you’re ready for the next step.

Skiers like this understand that
no matter how much they attempt to
ski un-groomed terrain, it remains
uncomfortable and a struggle.

It's time to put aside your struggle
and ego and DO something about it.

Howard specializes in small groups of skiers with similar skill levels; skiers who traditionally fit into Ski School Levels 6,7, or maybe a low level 8. Skiers who can ski any groomed run. Should you ski above or below this level, Howard can accommodate you as well, but this web site focuses on that strong Intermediate level. If you are unsure of your level, contact Howard Davis for clarification. You can CLICK HERE to send him an Email.

Good Intermediate skiers need the necessary building blocks and new skills which will move them into more advanced levels.

This new foundation is absolutely critical before you can move on into Advanced skiing. Without it? Well, you will just remain where you are – and hasn’t that been the situation so far?

Are you really ready for a change?

SKIING IS NOT SOMETHING YOU
LEARN IN A WEEKEND AND THEN
PRACTICE FOR 20 YEARS
TO GET GOOD AT IT!

It's like a series of steps.
And you only progress to the next
step by the incorporation of NEW SKILLS.

Many skiers are very good at the
Intermediate step, but will not progress
into Advanced without the new skills.

This is how to get those skills!
