Thanks for the help everyone!
Sounds like we will be taking lessons on the first day. I've thought about group lessons, but I think I'm going to stick with private. I like the idea of being able to request an instructor. The lesson is mainly for my wife, she has a major fear of losing control and having a terrible fall. She is a very cautious skier which I think holds her back, and keeps her from progressing as she could. She tells everyone she is bad skier and I always laugh and say "I can count the number of times you've fallen on one hand!". I don't think she fell 1 time during our first lesson, when I fell 15 seconds after putting on skis!
Any recommendations for an instructor who is good at teaching cautious beginner skiers? My wife said she might prefer a female instructor, any recommendations there too?
And I can't figure out how edit the thread title to put the resort name in it, can anyone point me in the right direction?
