I have a similar thread in this forum, but someone suggested I start a new thread. Please excuse me for mucking things up a bit.
My wife and I are getting ready for a trip to Beaver Creek/Vail Dec 15-21, and we are looking to take a half day private lesson at Beaver Creek.
A little of our skiing background:
Our first ski trip was a week long trip to Park City in 2010. We took our never ever lessons there and had a great instructor who was able to get us off to a great start. We took another week long trip that same season to Breckenridge (but no lesson). Last year we weren't able to get a trip in. So we are still pretty new to skiing. I've progressed faster than my wife, she still turns in a wedge while I'm able to stay parallel on greens/easy blues. This is due more to my wife's cautious nature than athletic ability. I do believe she is more physically talented on skis than I am. She is afraid of falling and getting hurt, so she stays within her comfort zone. I don't try to push her, but it's getting to the point where we can't really ski together because I'm wanting to do more blues while she is not ready. So the goal of the lesson is to get her comfortable skiing parallel, tackle some of her fear, and hopefully venture on to some of the blue runs with me; while I would get an official lesson on the fundamentals.
