Wow, talk about a big answer.   Being succinct:

 

l. Have fun, don't worry about what you look like, don't worry about what others think just go Ski and have fun.

 

2. Take some lessons but not all the time,  time on the mt. skiing counts - A Lot.

 

3.  Boots lst, then all the other stuff, stay warm.

 

4. Read all the beginner stuff here on Epic, there is a lot of info.

 

5.  Ski as often as you can 2 to 5 days in a row will really give you a boost.

 

HAVE FUN - SMILE A LOT - Apres is fun too.  You will meet some great people.

Plan your first trip out west to Alta or Deer Valley . . . no snowboarders allowed. :)

Treat - skiing at Alta/DV would be

Now that's a pretty good 3 line rhyme right there.

Deer Valley  $$$$$$$$, Alta great but hey we keep snowboarders off a lot of our mountain, How ?

 

The below pictured mountain, Wardner Peak at Silver Mt. Idaho is accessed via an approximate 16 inch wide long traverse, uphill, downhill and flat.  The sign at the beginning of the traverse (removed this year) stated "No walking on traverse".  Before the sign, during the sign and after the sign you won't find any boarders side slipping our powder.   AND, this isn't the only place at Silver that is ingressed or egressed with long traverses-Hooray for traverses.

If you look closely you can see the traverse.

@Pete No. Idaho

Horizontal line mid slope? Almost looks like a person on the left side between the trees.

Thats it, or you can hike up a groomed road on the far left of the pic to the tops and ski off the back or down what you can ski.  When the snows right it is good.  A few boarders will hike to the top but they aren't the lazy type or the ones that side slip the mt.  The real reason I took this shot was the two lines off the very top are mine and my partners-cool morning.
