Dear Mr. Frey,

I read your piece about Cary Thompson’s move to Sunlight Ski Area with great interest. ...I do know that he’s got it right and that his instruction method works. I’m 63. I have been skiing since 1972. I originally learned to ski at Killington, Vt. as a fIve day wonder...Bottom line, I eventually became an advanced to discrete-expert skier... I also got into journalism and became a ski writer to support my habit. I’ve skied throughout California, the West and the Pacific Northwest. I even skied at  Zermatt once. I made the switch to shorter parabolic skis and realized that they required a different technique. In March, 2007, I was skiing with a friend at Aspen and decided I needed some instruction on how to handle the new skis. As it happened, we were at Highlands that day and I drew Cary as my instructor. ... nobody else could keep up with us, so my group lesson turned into an all-day private class.

Cary totally transformed my skiing in one day! ...his technique is ridiculously simple: Look where you’re going and ...(ski with Cary’s technique: ed).... That is all there is to it. When you ski this way, you’re always centered on your skis; your butt and your upper body never lag behind them; you’re always in control. It works on the flats, it works on the steeps, it works in the bumps. It’s also virtually effortless.

I don’t know if Cary’s technique would have worked with the 205 cm Rossignols I used to ski on. Skiing on those, for me, was all about angulation -- keeping my upper body quiet with my torso and both hands always oriented to the fall line while my legs did all the work. Essentially, that was the way all the PSIA instructors taught me to ski. It worked, but it was tiring. It also took me many years and lessons to master. Cary’s teaching method offers a true shortcut to skiing proficiency. Maybe that’s why the PSIA doesn’t like it.
