Hi! I'm Ivan Madar. I'm a professional ski instructor and welcome to the Arizona Snowbowl. It's beautiful today and we are going to try to show you how to learn how to ski. I've been a professional instructor for over thirty years in the Rocky Mountain division. I'm a certified instructor, level three, with the United States Professional Ski Instructors of America. First of all, let's see what do we need for skiing, obviously? The obvious things you need some skis, you need some boots and you need to be dressed properly. So, we don't have to get into that in detail. We can get into it as we talk about the instruction. Secondly, you have to make sure you stay safe on the slopes. So we will talk a little bit about the Code of Responsibilities for skiers. But first, let's decide how we are going to show you how you can ski at your level. And, obviously not everybody is physically fit all the time. Not everybody is at the same athletic ability and not everyone has the same level of coordination. But, there's a way to ski for everyone. So, I'd like to show you two ways; how to progress into a nice advanced staged of skiing which we call parallel turn skiing; where you can control yourself, whether you are a conditioned athlete or you are someone who is just starting and have never done anything athletic in your life.
