I worked the last 4 days at Cascade and I had a lot of fun lessons over the new year. The temps were good (not too cold or too warm), there were fireworks and we were making snow. On Saturday, there was some nice sun shining down. Today, we had some nice, light flurries. I […]

Skiing Lessons in Full Swing

In December, I worked with training the new hires and the returning instructors and now skiing season is rocking. I taught 3 lessons yesterday – one private and then two groups. They were all great. The private ski lesson was a 13 year old named Lawson and he was really into sailing and was a […]

Take a Lesson in December

Ok, so it’s going to get really cold again this season. If you remember last year (who could forget?), you’ll remember that it was nice in December and then just colder than the North Pole the rest of the season… brrr! So, if you’re even thinking about getting outdoors this late fall or winter, get […]

Presidents Day Weekend Skiing

It was another busy weekend at Cascade on Presidents Day weekend. The weather was really good, too – especially Sunday. I had a number of private lessons, some beginner group lessons and an intermediate group lesson or two as well. People take advantage of private lessons so that they can skip in line during these […]

On Friday, I had a group from American Family Insurance and some school kids from Oregon, WI. The lesson took longer (we went over) but had a good time, so I didn’t mind. On Saturday, I had a private lesson with two girls (9 and 11 I believe) and we worked on some edging and […]

First Set of Lessons and Re-Training

This last weekend, I worked Friday night, Saturday and Sunday. On Friday night, I had a group of middle school kids. I was able to go through my entire beginner lesson. It went well and the kids were great. It was really cold, so I kept everyone moving to keep them warm. We came all […]

Cascade Closed for the Season

Well, Cascade closed yesterday for the season. It’s sad that ski season there is over. As always, it seems to have gone too fast. I went in on Saturday and had my last two lessons of the year. The first was a group and they were fun. The snow was pretty icy and fast that […]

Taking Ski Lessons

I was talking with someone the other day. He was talking about how his son really wants to learn skiing. He said he was good enough to get down the hill with some control and hated weekends because there were too many people. I could totally relate to that! I used to only ski during […]
