thanks for the invite, Kim! Happy to join the group.  So, I'm sort of ski bum like you, part of the time. I have a year-round gig taking executives outside their comfort zone on high impact experiential retreats and leadership development programs (Group Experiential Learning is like Outward Bound for the C-Suite) but in the winter months, I teach skiing at Northstar California.  I love teaching kids age 3 to 93, and write a skiing related blog called "This Mountain Life."  I'm looking forward to the discussions here, and  hope to learn some things and/or be helpful to others.

Friends...  The Sports Basement, founded by another friend, Eric Prosnitz, has invited me to bring a bunch of ski and snowboard instructors to their Presidio location for 4 hours to help parents or novice skiers themselves, learn strategies for getting started in or improving their skiing and riding.  Would love help spreading the word!
