Video: Vail Tips from the Mountain Top #NokiaIcon

I went to Vail and got “Tips from the Mountain Top” on my Nokia Icon.

If you don’t know how to ski (and I don’t) navigating with the weight of the layers of clothes, boots and skis is challenging enough. Add to the mix balancing with a camera and all bets are off. Enter Nokia Icon, a game changer for me. I slipped it into my jacket pocket, hopped on the gondola and headed up the mountain to meet my ski instructor Christy Remeta, a 16 year veteran on Vail mountain. Christy was amazing. She immediately got my focus on where it should be, skiing, versus the “what ifs” that were running rampant through my helmeted head. What if I fall? What if I break something?

Under Christy expert tutelage I focussed, my fears subsided and I was able to enjoy the moment, the mountain and the learning to ski experience. The Vail Ski School is on top of the mountain which is absolutely amazing! Even if you never progress from the bunny hill, you get the same breathtaking view of ‘real skiers’. It was gorgeous and the perfect backdrop to ask Christy for a few tips about skiing Vail.
