Amazing Instructor

Full review

Met an off-duty instructor while skiing with my two buddies. They decided to take me down a blue/ black diamond for my second time skiing, and about half way down I was seriously struggling. A man approached me and offered me life-saving tips shortly after he helped me recover one of my poles and skis. Turns out he was an instructor at Waterville Valley named Kim. Kim demonstrated enthusiasm, patience and a passion for what he does to the point where it inspired to be more like him. He stayed with me and encouraged me even though i continued to fall off my skis,and cheered me on when I succeeded which helped me eventually regain my confidence and I was able to make it all the way down the mountain. He spent about 30 minutes with me and continued to instruct me throughout the whole thing. To be honest that man was a life savor. I offered him money or a beer but he said that wasn't necessary. Kim demonstrated an impressive skill in skiing instruction and a love for what he does, and I will probably never forget the favor he did for me.
