Kris Buttenberg is a fabulous ski instructor.
He is friendly and professional, and excellent at helping me progress quickly with fun and challenging lesson plans.
He built a wonderful “Biste,” an inclined treadmill that makes it possible to ski and learn faster, even during the off season. I have been becoming a better skier in the last several months since taking lessons with him—and that was during the summer.
I have rehabilitating and re-educating my body so that I can safely and strongly ski after knee and ankle injuries. Before taking lessons with Kris, my knee was holding me back from regaining my former ski skills or getting to be much better as a skier.
But now, since Kris has been so great at helping me fine-tune what I am doing, I think I might even be a better skier than I’ve ever been my whole life!
Unlike with traditional, on-site mountain ski lessons in the snow, with the Biste, he can be just a few feet in front of me, and can see what all my bones and joints are doing, so that hes been able to teach me and train me to ski with much greater ease and confidence.
