I would like to piggyback this thread. I am a level 5-6 skier wanting lessons in Breck the second week in Feb. I will be skiing weekdays. Mostly, I am a slow, somewhat cautious skier who enjoys skiing blues all day. I am wanting to take lessons to improve my technique (haven't had a lesson since day 1) and to gain the skill and confidence to possbily ski blue-blacks or blacks without moguls. I wish I could afford a private lesson, but can't. Does anyone have thoughts as to whether I should sign up for an Ultimate Four (max 4 students/instructor) for levels 1-4, or a group lesson?. And, will I be OK in an intermediate/advanced group lesson, or are most of the people in those groups more advances or aggressive skiers? Does the smaller group give you better instruction, or are the group lessons usually pretty small anyway?
Thanks for your comments/suggestions! I would love to hear from anyone who has recently taken an "intermediate" level lesson at Breck.
