Conquering Collins: How the Long-Term Development pathway helped me learn to ski at 25
As a first-time skier this season, Collins green run on Cypress Mountain has been my ultimate challenge. After taking an hour to ski that run on one of my first attempts, it has both made me nervous and intrigued me ever since.
With COVID-19 restrictions limiting whom I can ski with, and with no plans to take ski lessons, it’s been a challenge I have had to rise to primarily on my own.
In February, I finally made it down the Collins without falling, with confidence, and in reasonable time too.
