I learnt at Keystone. I was working there any my brother had sent me there with his old board. I had skied up until that point. As I worked days I used to ride the bunny hill at night. Never had a lesson but the lifty used to give me tips. Spent a couple of nights there. Once I started riding with the guys I worked with I could either ride by myself on the greens or ride blues and blacks with them. As said above its a very steep learning curve. I'm still very grateful to those guys as I think without the push I may never have tried some of the harder stuff.
So many runs so little time.
