Dan wanted to learn to get smoother with his riding and perhaps learn to jump. he’d never jumped a gap before today and his technique was very much hit and miss. The skills check showed us why and I set to work correcting it.

Before long Dan was riding steeps, drops, tabletops, pumping, jumping gaps and linking sections of the trail together. An amazing session unfolded and he was amazed at how simple it all felt, once I showed him that his skiing experience was so valuable.
