I just passed my CSIA level 2 ski instructor training, which means I no longer limited to teach bunny hills, I can now teach on blue runs. I have my level 1 certification for 4 years but never teach any lessons. This year I decided to give level 2 a…

Beginning of the ski season

3rd Jan 2010 - 02:11am Daily Scribble
