Clendenin Ski Method
What Graduates Say…
Aspen Camp – Ron
I wanted to tell you that skiing with you in your mogul academy was one of my best days ever on the slopes. The Clendenin Ski Method is truly a simple, yet highly effective tool that will catapult anyone’s skiing to the next level. Anyone, at any level or age looking to gain invaluable skills to master bumps, crud, powder and more should look no further than the Clendenin method.
Aspen Camp – George
When you are retired, 65 and ski at least 70 days a year, it’s important that you continue to improve. I enjoy all kinds of skiing–on mountain, back country, Masters racing, hele, telemark–and I go to a Clendenin clinic every year because it helps me so much with all of them. And, John’s clinics are for skiers of any skill level. My daughter and her husband–she is a superb skier and he is a fully certified IMGA guide– are flying in this winter to attend a January clinic, even though they moved from Aspen to Tahoe this year. There’s only one Ski Doctor in the US.
Aspen Camp and Gold Plan Lessons – Lou & Dena
After three straight years of clinics – every year we have improved our skills, learned new tricks, met and made new friends, and last but not least, are amazed and enchanted by Mr. Clendenin’s skills, instructions, and endearing personality and a World Class Skier!
See you next year, same time, same place for our next level of improvement.
Park City Camp – Bobbi
As much as I love the camps in Aspen, doing a CSM camp in Park City offers a great chance to experience a difference in terrain, coaches and the town. The Park City Resort provides good opportunities to practice the “Keys to the Kingdom” on progressively challenging terrain. I highly recommend a Park City camp to anyone – those that have taken camps at other resorts or have never taken one at all. Valuable lessons will be learned that will substantially improve your ski experience.
Portillo Camp – Chris
I learned more in one day of skiing with you and your staff than I have in 25 years of skiing. Your method combined with the expertise and attitude of you staff is unsurpassed. It allowed me to acquire the techniques to ski steep bumps anywhere in a short period of time. I had tried in the past to teach myself how to ski bumps to no avail. It would always end up with utter frustration, bruises, and no desire to continue to try. To put it in another light it was like what Mike Tyson said during an interview before an up coming fight, “Everybody’s got a plan until you get hit.” You and your team, with its very hands on approach showed me and others exactly how to handle conditions that you might not always plan for in skiing. By pushing us to the edge of our comfort zone with your new techniques it allowed me to surpass the old comfort zone and move into a new level competence and confidence.
Gold Plan Lessons – Greg
Thank you for a welcoming atmosphere, a well-organized program, and an exceptional value in skiing instruction! I couldn’t believe the degree of personal attention and hours spent on the hill for the price, as well as a totally new way to “”be”" on the hill and approach this sport. I was skeptical at first, but I am now convinced and having fun with it.
Gold Plan Lessons – Gary
Through our skiing career, we have SO struggled with speed in the bumps that we always felt out of control. This inability to cope with bumps shut done much of the mountain for us. We wanted to find a way to play in more terrain and feel in control. Finding John Clendenin was a gift. His teaching method made absolute sense every step of the way. My wife and I improved so rapidly I wished we had met him 20 years ago. John has become a lifelong friend and our All-Mountain Skiing Guru. For time to time we see him again for tune ups to polish the skills that have so helped us find more pleasure all over the mountain. The positive feedback from John and staff along with the ease of applying his technique have been well worth it without a doubt. It’s the best out there for sure!”
