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. Nick M [Intermediate or Beginner]
  2. Skyler D. (Alpine skier beginners or from a tropical island beginners)
  3. Line [prefer absolute beginners, but can also do alpine skier beginner]
  4. Matt P. can teach any kind of beginner, but prefers durable ones.
  5. Phil H. Any level (CANSI tele instructor)
  6. Erica L. (Beginner +)
  7. Steve (Muffin) -- [prefer teaching a combo intermediate/advanced group. Realistically, there are no mogals or powder on Seymour, and most 'advanced' skiiers should consider teaching OR be polishing their intermediate techniques] I'd like to teach the Sunday as well, but can't go to Baker...
  8. Veenstra [beginner/intermediate, especially people who want to tele really low with boots that are too big - that's my specialty]
  9. Len G. Not very good myself, but I suppose I can have a net usefulness greater than zero with complete beginners.
  10. Paolo S. (Beginners or Alpine Skier Beginners)
  11. Emily Ackroyd [beginner (can ski but never telemarked) or intermediate]
  12. Richard So [beginner to intermediate]
  13. Laura C [Either total newbs or new to tele'tastic turns]
