Young Astro has only done ski lessons at Sun Peaks. A grand total of about 18 weeks of instruction at Sun Peaks, because it's so cheap. You have seen the videos with him skiing. You have heard the comments from ex-instructors on this site. He is by far the best skier in the family and his technique is apparently very correct. Regarding myself. I only ever skied with my skis locked together. I took 2 lessons at sun Peaks. Separation is slowly coming around. I will be taking another lesson at Sun peaks this year.
