After a couple of years off the skis I am finally planning a trip to Vermont this weekend to get my sea legs back. I am planning on spending Saturday at Mount Snow to get acclimated, and then was thinking of heading somewhere more northern for Sunday. I was hoping to find a place that is both fun and relatively affordable to take a private lesson. I was on the ski team in high school and then took a 10 year hiatus. Before I stopped I was probably around level 6-7.
I saw on Liftopia MRG tickets can be had for around $40, and a 2 hour private lesson is only $100! Most other places the private lessons are at least $100 an hour. I understand the reputation of MRG in regards to terrain and conditions, but am interested in the challenge and the old-timey atmosphere. Any thoughts on if this is a reckless and/or dangerous proposition? I have also considered Magic and Bromley, although the lessons are more expensive.
Any thoughts or recommendations?
