    I can't believe you call your gf being taken down in a sled on her first day ever, a successful day. I can't wait to read you TR's about a bad day!

    All the power to you. She certainly sounds like a keeper!! (And a trooper!).

    An "expert skier" would never have gotten themselves into a situation where the first timer that they were skiing with needed to take a sled down due to fatigue and frustration. I hope you made a big donation to the Killington ski patrol for bailing you out.

    She has a nice smile. It's too bad you took it away from her on her first skiing experience. Expert instructors know that the most important thing they can do is make it fun enough that a student will return for another lesson. Next time, listen to the advice given from the rental shop, care enough about your girl to pony up for a legitimate lesson, buy her a nice lunch after she completes the lesson and then return to the same trail(s) that her instructor taught her on so not to preempt her learning by removing her from her comfort zone.

    You know. I was thinking that it was BD move too! I would never have put a beginner in that position.

    As someone who only works with first time skiers i would like to say
    It only takes approx 3 hours to get someone from the beginner bump "10 ft long pitch to flat run out" to green trails when they come in for a lesson at Belleayre.In the 1 to 1.5 hrs of the 15 dollar lesson they are taught balance and stance thru wedge turns to stop.After they graduate we send them to the tow handle to practice what we taught and most make it to the green lift after 2 or 3 runs down the 100 yrd bunny trail.
    THE ONLY WAY SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN EXHAUSTED IS BECAUSE YOU HAD HER IN A POWER WEDGE FROM MINUTE 1.
    Feel sorry for her and i don't even know her.Hope you didn't scar her for life.
    I have had people who couldn't do it but we have a 99% success rate on a 2 turn and turn to stop final station.

    Dude you did a major injustice to your girlfriend.
