Ski Younger Now is taught by Vail's most experienced instructors -- veterans who have pooled their tactics for skiing beyond age 55. 

Most people who learned to ski in the 1970's and '80's have spent decades perfecting the techniques that worked with 204cm straight skis. They work too hard, unnecessarily. We can show you how to ski without muscling the skis around. By letting the ski and terrain shape do the work, you ski more smoothly, in balance throughout the turn. That means less fatigue, longer days, more frequent ski days and a much longer career ahead.

Ski Younger Now teaches low-impact, low-torque techniques leading to efficient skiing in all kinds of terrain, from groomers to powder to bumps. 

Conceived as a retraining program for older skiers, and for skiers returning to the sport after recovering from an injury, Ski Younger Now was developed by older ski instructors over the past 20 years. The program has been proven effective in extending on-snow careers for recreational skiers.



DAY 1: 

On the first day, we focus on letting the ski start and finish each turn with little muscular effort. During an apres-ski session we'll talk about the dynamics of modern skis and boots. 



On the second day, we focus on using terrain shape to guide our turns, with the goal of flowing down the mountain like water.


DAY 3: 

On the third day we'll take these tactics into more challenging terrain and snow conditions, and explore how efficient, low-impact skiing enables confidence and control in bumps and powder.
