Is it true that pointing where you want to go with arms outstretched parellel to board can really help when learning to traverse and turn.
All i know is that mt hutts learners slope is a joke. Ive read in japan that one resorts beginners trail is 4km long.... Sometimes i think a holiday at a ski in ski out resort might be better as that way we can spend a good 6 to 12 days constantly on far longer learners slopes....another issue seems to be nz learners slopes arent very wide....if we were to go to usa or japan can anyone recommend a great beginners resort ?
buy all the protective gear you can buy, it will bring much confidence
