Some 16 years ago, I done what was then called a BASI Foundation course.
I was obviously so impressed that I ended my ski instructional career there and then.
Now, with over 30 years ski experience (yes, I really am quite old) but having never really been shown or taught how to ski it all came as somewhat as an eye opener.
Not overly impressed that I had to re-schedule my ski mountaineering work today because, strangely enough we have no base.
Every cloud has a silver lining though and at least the email inbox will get cleared :)
