You've kinda taken the on the fence view alot of people go either way! I sympathies with the boarder as I saw him in the Bar afterwards! The instructor especially ESF seem to have a "godlike" status in France so you would probably be banned for life if you told one of them to not teach bad habits!!
The instructor should not.be teaching these bad habits either. I always stop and tell the instructors around here that they should not be teaching bad habits of hanging under blind rollers, cutting all the way across piste immediately and blindly, lining up across the run blocking with 6-8 people side to side....[/QUOTE]
