- The struggle continues. But why?
Here’s a question for you.
Why would anyone drive for hours possibly in dangerous snowy and icy conditions, fly across countries and oceans, pay hundreds of dollars or even thousands, stand outside often in freezing temperatures, brave crowds, wait sometimes for half an hour in a lift line on a busy day, all while not knowing exactly if the conditions will be decent, risk life changing injury or even death, frustration and humiliation and embarrassment for beginners, just for two to four minutes (at these smaller East Coast resorts) of actual skiing/snowboarding time per run?
A Private Lesson
Flight hours. I need flight hours.
Bryce is one of the closest and more reasonably priced resorts nearby, so after obsessing, checking the weather constantly, and basically being incredibly bored and purposeless, I went for it. I signed up for a two hour lesson.
Hot tip: Or cold tip?? I’m willing to drop a few dollars on lessons for two reasons:
- You get to jump to the front of the line on chair lifts when you’re taking lessons.
- It’s not a whole lot of fun being on the slopes alone when you’re struggling.
- If things go well, I’d have someone with a lot of experience who could get gopro footage of me.
