YOUR TURN 2019 Recap

Posted by Bill & Paul's | 02.25.2019



What a difference a year makes! Whereas our 2018 YOUR TURN event was held in soggy spring-like conditions with fog and rain, the weather for this year’s event was as perfect as it gets for a day on the slopes. We were blessed with sunshine, bluebird skies, and temps that kept the snow soft and dry throughout the day. From the get-go, our group of 26 women shared an upbeat energy, fueled by great weather and better company.

 The program began with breakfast and presentations from Lisa Ballard and Elan ski representative Ray Skelton on how modern skis allow us have more fun on the slopes.  The gals then headed to the demo tent where they were able to select a new pair of Elan skis to use in their morning classes.  Lisa rotated between two groups before lunch, video taping and instructing while the other groups worked with their own instructors on techniques to improve their skills. During lunch Lisa analyzed her morning groups via video which is a powerful and entertaining way to critique oneself.


After lunch it was back to the demo tent to switch up skis before the groups headed out for more instruction.  The other two groups worked with Lisa and her camera before everyone headed in at 3pm.  Once re-grouped in Beaties, the afternoon groups reviewed their video while enjoying apres beverages.  The atmosphere was certainly upbeat leading up the wrap-up and raffle!




We can't say enough about how amazing it was spending the day around 26 high spirited skiers in such a welcoming environment.  Caberfae once again outdid themselves with their incredible customer service and support.  Thanks to the talented group of instructors, the dedicated staff at Beaties Bar & Grill, and to Ray and his team for their work in the demo tent.  A special thanks to Lisa Ballard for selecting Bill & Paul’s as a partner shop for her 2019 YOUR TURN tour, for the energy she brings to the day, and her gift for teaching.
