A few years ago I started skiing, (really started just to introduce my kids to the sport and ended up loving it) on the East coast- mainly smaller mountains in NY and Pennsylvania. I've skiied the blacks and a few double blacks at Hunter and Windham. Am comfortable on all sorts of blues out here. Did the blues at Killington and some blacks.
I'm going on my first trip to Colorado next week- by myself- and want to do a one day lesson. The cost of a private is a little steep so I'm looking at the group- thinking an all day.
I'm skiing Copper first for one day and then spending Friday, Sat and Sunday in Vail.
Can't decide if I should get the lesson on Copper or Vail- the advantage to Vail would be getting taking around the terrain and fast passing some lift lines.
My goal is to be able to ski some of the back bowls with confidence.
Any guidance would be appreciated.
