    Wondering if anyone can throw me any leads on this.

    Went for my first snowboard lessons at Falls Creek last weekend (1-2 Sep) and was taught by the same instructor. His name tag says 'Chris' and he was an awesome instructor and was ridiculously patient with me. Was planning to head up there before the season ends if I can get a lesson from him again. I gave the snowsports school a call and was told that there was no such snowboarding instructor despite me arguing so.

    Unless 'Chris' is a figment of my imagination, could anyone throw a lead on a snowboard instructor in Falls Creek, tall and light-haired, late 20s-early 30s, who uses a Nitro snowboard.

    Otherwise, any great recommendations on snowboard instructors on Falls Creek will be welcomed!

    Cheers!

    There was an instructor at Falls Creek last year called Chris Hayes. I am not sure whether he teaches boarding aswell. The age and description matches.May not be th same one. Good luck.

    AFAIK Chris Hayes is only a ski instructor, and when I saw him yesterday he had pretty dark hair so I doubt he's the one we're looking for.
