A better day - with a few questions

Hit the hill today with the kids and the new 3 degree grind with detune and it helped. Found a couple instructors who helped also but when I mentioned garlands they had no idea what I was talking about. Kids did better but my son has a tendency to steer with his arms.

Wondering if anyone has contact info for the snowproffesor team, I believe thay are somewhat close to us and I would like to find some better instructors in my area.

Or if anyone has info on instructors in central Iowa I would be grateful for the info.

Thanks for the help

Garlands are known as falling leaf. Did you try the snowball trick with your son to keep his arms down?

Edit: Just remembered that garlands aren't the same as falling leaf. Sorry.

It's from the snowprofessor videos. Basicly you hold two snowballs on the sides of your waist with your wrists while you ride. This forces you to keep your arms to your side and promotes using your feet for control.
