In 2006 I participated in the Thredbo SLAP 5 day course. I had terrific fun and improved greatly. Not long after, my wife lost her job and we became more financially cautious. I traded skiing for volleyball, then taekwondo. Fast forward 10 years, I just spent 5 days at Falls Creek. No snow, spent the whole week skiing one run. I'm totally hooked again. 1 lesson was all it took. I'd love to do another week long program. It looks like the SLAP program is now called the "Rossignol All Mountain Camp". They also run a Masters GS Training Camp, but that starts on Jul 20, I think I'd rather allow time for more snow. So a bunch of questions: 1) One camp starts 2nd August 2015, the other, 9th August. Any reason to pick one over the other? 2) Wheres a cheap place to stay for Thredbo single bedroom accommodation? When I ski I don't have energy to do more than ski, eat and sleep. 3) I'm still using the same boots I purchased after my first trip 15 years ago. I got bad advice and the boots are far too big for me. Who do you recommend I see to get a proper boot fitting, either in Sydney or Thredbo? I'm happy with rental skis but really want a well fitted boot. Who do the instructors and racers get to fit their boots? 4) Any other advice regarding training camp prep or travel? (I will train to get fit/strong prior to the trip) My skiing history in case its relevant: Started at skiing at age 25. Skied for a couple of weeks every year for about 7 years, mostly in Queenstown and Austria. Had a couple of private 1 hour lessons each trip, plus that SLAP. Currently 40 years old. I'm comfortable on all terrain but don't have much experience skiing below the tree line. Only participated in one race (a GS as part of the SLAP program), and I really enjoyed it. I'm a nerd who really enjoys thinking about technique and body mechanics.
