Since retiring I have restored my passion for skiing. I'm a good intermediate/ advanced skier always trying to improve.
I ski mostly at Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe & Sugar Bowl in California. The Tahoe area has many choices to choose from.
I have so much fun skiing that I have to share it with everybody. And I like to liven up the crowd & put smiles on people's faces with colorful outfits & my good sense of humor. To me everyday is Retro day. Mostly, Have fun out there.

Welcome aboard Don. Glad we got the Snowtalk/Skitalk thing figured out!

I’m a Level 1/2 skier. Perhaps you can teach me how to improve my performance. I had a bad fall last winter on a bunny slope alone (do not ask me how) and have been very scared ever since that afternoon to return to the ski slopes or even to take more lessons.

I'm not an instructor. But if you have a desire for skiing, after a fall you get up and try again. Start on the easy runs & work up to the next level. You can do it.

Thank you. I will practice ski techniques next year for sure in order to help myself. I have no clue how to progress further but I can try skiing once more anyway. Wish me luck in doing so. I am unsure.
