The saying “Old Dudes Rule” was a theme for our Thunder Cat today as the majority of gentlemen on the snowcat were veteran ski instructors from Seattle, WA. The years of ski instructing they had under their belts was quite apparent once the fellas took off down the powder fields…they RIPPED and their form was textbook.
I find a lot of people who are new to the sport, especially when in their adult years, dismiss the value in taking a ski lesson. Having been a ski instructor myself, I can vouch for them as an instructor’s wealth of knowledge through experience can usually grow a total beginner into a darn good one with just a few simple tips and drills.
Respect your elders, folks, because there is a good chance they ski better than you!
