First off, hello I am new to Epicski.
I am planning to go Skiing for the first time this coming weekend (weather permitting) at Hunter Mountain and I am just wondering the best way to go about getting started.
A little background info: I am 28 years old and I have never skied before. I snowboarded for about 2 years but the last time I went was probably close to 10 years ago so I don't think any of that skill will translate over. I have decided I want to learn to ski this time instead of going back to snowboarding. I am fairly athletic and tend to have good balance(hopefully this will save me from certain death).
Basically what I am looking for is what to do for my first day. Would you recommend that I take like an hour private lesson and then ski for the rest of the day or maybe take a group class for a few hours before skiing? When I snowboarded I never took any lessons and just learned on my own. I understand this is probably not the best way to go this time.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
