I didn't think before I posted originally and if I had I would have realized there is no way Killington or any resort would allow non-associated instructors to teach.

I would not be taking a beginner new skier up to the peak and skiing the green runs up there, (Great Northern or Great Eastern) even if she could handle after some lessons the "greens" at Snowshed. If you want to be skiing and staying with this woman you have to sacrifice. It will take time to become a skier with the ability to get around a place as large and spread out as Killington. It will be slow going, if you rush her she will hate the sport and maybe you. This is an investment that will cost money and TIME. Your best bet is to do the 1st time 3 day learner package ( check their website) and get the extra 3 free days at Pico and come up later in the season to use those 3 days.
That was the intent of my post - to ask about lessons for her so I could have time skiing myself and then spend some time with her at Snowshed. I would never expose her to the horror that is Great Northern and I think just the Gondola ride itself to the top would panic her. I want her to learn and ski at her own pace and I will join her here and there but thank goodness she will have a friend learning with her.
I did call Killington last week and for $209 I can do the 3 day program. Even if she only uses a 2 of 3 days its worth it.
