Instructor Sign-up

We will try and maintain a student to instructor ratio of 4:1 (minimize cost to students while keeping small group sizes). Instructors will be selected as student numbers require in order of sign-up. Instructors: please indicate an appropriate skier ability for your group.

  1. Ran Z. (Beginner Plus)
  2. Christopher (Beginner+)
  3. Erica L. (Beginner+)
  4. Fabienne M. (Beginner+)
  5. Nick C. (Beginner+, and only if you're short of instructors)
  6. Greg W. (Any level, 90% sure I can be there)
  7. Skyler (Beginner + if it's not on the same day as Advanced)
  8. Laura C [Dead beginners (could be comical) or learning to tele'ers (could be fun!)]
  9. Nick M (Beginner)
  10. Kjell (Advanced/expert) At this level I'm fine with teaching a larger group
  11. Veenstra (Beginner-intermediate) Have to clear resort by 4pm, but usually that's not a problem...
  12. Roland Burton I can patiently teach survival skiing to total beginners but I can't teach tele. Is that any use to you?
  13. Steve Mullen (advanced, though a combined int./adv. group would also be fun)
  14. Breanne J. (Beginner+ or Beginner)
  15. Evan Morris (Beginner+)
  16. Emily Ackroyd (beginner+, or intermediate if needed)
