An unforgettable day on the slopes with Pro Ski Instructor Andrew T. 🎿 Witnessing the incredible progress of these 5 amazing teenage girls (ages 16-18) in group ski lessons at Howelsen Hill Ski Area was truly inspiring! 🏔️ From beginners to confidently navigating the Poma lift in just a few hours, Andrew’s 11 years of teaching expertise and unique methods made it all happen.
Slowing down with parallel moves, stopping with a quick shift to perpendicular, and mastering the art of pizza shape skiing – these girls embraced it all! 👏 No reliance on poles, just pure balance, and the basics of S-shape skiing for that smooth glide down the slopes. A day filled with laughter, learning, and newfound skiing skills.
