If you are in or near Washington State, you should definitely check out Crystal Mountain. Dun-slope With an elevation of 7004 feet and a vertical drop of 3102 feet, Crystal Mountain actually sits below Mount Rainier, which has a top elevation of 14,408 feet. Between the months of November and April, Dun-slope several feet of fresh powder falls on Crystal Mountain, due to the cold Cascade storms common to the area. The season runs from the middle of November to the middle of April, when the most snow fall is experienced. Dun-slope There are several places to choose for lodging, meals, and nightly entertainment, but the biggest attraction is the skiing, of course. If your kids aren’t quite ready for the black diamond trails – but you are – you can register them in the Kid’s Club. Dun-slope The Kid’s Club is open from 8am to 4pm each day for children aged four to eleven years old. The kid’s aged 4 – 11 will be supervised while they ski on a ‘kid appropriate’ slope, and snowboarding is also available for children aged 7 – 11 years old. Dun-slope Your child will have fun, while being supervised and taught. The cost of the care includes a four hour lesson, a lift ticket, lunch, and supervision. Rental equipment is available for the kids for an additional fee. Most of putting accuracy and precision begins and ends with distance control. Distance control comes from touch for the given. Dun-slope Every green has a different speed and the speed changes during the day and from day to day. Hopefully, the speeds of all greens on a course are close, but this is only within a certain range. So distance control inevitably entails some green reading for speed and some touch just for that particular speed. Once beside the ball, you have to resettle the brain, since you’ve just stopped moving. Then focus steadily on the ball and turn your head to carry the gaze along the path on the ground at the speed your experience and touch tells you the ball will likely roll in the perfect putt. It’s not the eyes that matter here. It’s the pacing and extent of your neck turn. It helps to have the eyes in plane with the putt plane, but the real important cue is what your neck muscles tell your brain about distance. So pretend you really are following the ball to and into the hole. Also don’t let your eyesight jump or wander about. Look steadily at the hole or even some point on the lip or down into the center of the cup. This procedure creates an anchor point as your body assesses direction and distance, and it also creates an image of the apparent shape and size of the hole that your brain uses. Then, look from the hole along the path with a smooth neck turn back to the ball. At this time, you have about as vivid a sense of the location of the hole in terms of distance and direction as you are likely to get, and you have an internal mental image of the appearance of the hole. You also have a kinetic, rhythmic sense of the neck turn and a memory of just how far to turn the neck to get back to the hole. You do not need to think about the force of the stroke, and in fact it probably hurts to do so. Just let the neck turn’s pacing and extent work its magic by mimicking this in your stroke’s tempo. The length of your stroke will adjust itself without conscious involvement. All you want consciously is the thought: use your athletic ability to roll the ball into the hole. All the way, at the best speed for capture. Once you have exquisite distance control, you feel liberated to concentrate solely on line and break.
