We recently received our first blind skier booking at the ranch...to say the least we were a little apprehensive.
We have heard of all the stuff people have used for blind skiers, horns whistles ect. and nothing made us feel comfortable pulling a blind skier on a slalom lake that has turn islands! So, in a conversation with a friend that had been to The Masters and saw the system, he suggested we research Headzone? (http://www.headzone.com/)
We did... and before anyone thinks I work for them, or got one free--wrong-- we bucked up and bought the one helmet system. I'm here to tell you it was money well spent! It works great, not only for our blind guest but, we have used it on every guest on all lessons this week and the results are amazing! How many times at the end of the lake have you told someone to change or do something, only to have them tell you they forgot or don't know they are doing it? Have I made my case??? Real time coaching! The ability to tell the skier before or when the need to do or change something!!!!!
Is it for everyone no, I get that... but does it work? YES! I could go on, but I will spare you...if anyone has questions feel free to reach out and tell you what I know so far...from here on out it will be a standard here at the ranch!
