Dynamic Skiing for Life - You ski for the challenge, you ski for the exercise but most of all you ski for the sheer joy of it!

Margaret McIntyre continues to teach her highly successful "whole body" program in Vail. This indoor/outdoor program specifically teaches skiing movement awareness indoors, before going out on the slopes! This creates learning that "sticks"! To maximize continuity, top ski instructors participate in the indoor classes teaching the same themes on the snow. Margaret's program has a proven track record over 20 years for improving skiing for intermediate to advanced skiers, in a short period of time. Her simple method dramatically improves balance, control, coordination, movement efficiency, replacing old habits with new moves so that you will carve turns, tackle bumps and blaze through powder with more symmetry and ease. You will perform better with less energy. Try it! it works! 

Dynamic Skiing for Life dates: December 15-19, 2013
