    Slalom Training - looking for people at Hunter Mountain, NY

    I am trying to get some slalom gate training. Hunter Mountain, NY organizes that, but they need 3 people to hold the camp. The price is $94 for 1 day or $149 for 2 days.

    They set up gates, and we can train 8:30am-4pm on the course. They also rovide coaching/instruction. I think it's a great deal and quite underpriced.

    I am looking for 2 (or more) people to join me so Hunter Mtn. can run the camp for us. I would like to do 1 or 2 days, any or all weekends in April, depending if/when I can find people to join me. Please send me PM so we can coordinate, if anybody is interested.

    If you are interested in Slalom, don't forget the Sugar Slalom at Stowe in April. You'll need to be a USSA member to compete. But, masters racers get in easily (assuming it's not full) and run early.

    SL workshop

    Are you going to this workshop this Sunday? I'm trying to figure out if I can make it there in time since I would be leaving Sunday morning from Queens, ahead of my party.

    I never slalomed in my life so I dont know if this workshop might be above my abilities, I also do not have SL skis, I would have to use my all mountain carvers.

    Did the workshop yesterday at Hunter. It was great, the instructors were Doug, Ed and Tim, they train the race teams. The guys were very helpful and even lent me their SL skis(Atomic and K2) since I was skiing on huge all mountain skis that had me sliding all over the place (SL skis are next on my to-buy list). They also video taped us and gave us analysis twice during the day. Included was breakfast and lunch (whatever you want!), the two day option is an even better deal because its only a few dollars more than the single day (neither include lift tickets though). I still think its a great deal. They had two slalom courses set up for us and we were running with some kids from the junior Olympic team (that really haul @ss incidentally) for some inspiration and examples of how we should be taking these runs. I overheard them saying that they think yesterday will be the last day for teaching the workshops. The instructor told me that once I can handle SL courses well, NASTAR will seem like pudding. Next year I will be signing up for more of these, I had a blast.

    That's exciting, XJguy.

    I am still interested in doing this in April (any of the first 3 weekends when they are open). I need 2 more people, so they can hold the workshop (they organize one upon request for 3 or more people). If you are interested in doing the workshop again, or anybody else, let me know.

    I presume they will. You can call them and ask them. I spoke to them and they told me that they made a mistake pricing them. Below $150 for 2 days of coaching, gates and video instruction is a very good deal. So, I bet they will increase the price, unfortunately. I found out about this at http://www.huntermtn.com/workshops.html .

    I am still looking for 2 people to join me. Whoever wants to join me should send me a private message and I'll reply, so we can coordinate.
