Advice on teaching a noob
guys and girls,
heading out in a week now for my first runs this year in Aus. Taking my girlfriend with me, who has only ever ski'd (and that's been once or twice).
What advice could you give me to help her learn quicker?
When I started, I came into it on the back of wakeboarding and my mates put me on a lift, took me to top of a blue run and said have fun. Fortunately, i picked it up fairly quickly, but it took me a long while to get to the bottom.
First thing i was going to teach her skating (stomp pad included), getting up, falling (withouth breaking anything), heel turning and stopping, toe side turns.
Any tips, or process' to follow would be good advice. I personally learnt by doing it myself and just giving it a crack - she likes to know the absolute details first.....
