I will be going to Utah for a short trip Jan 12 - 15.
On the 14th, my ski buddy (my dad), has a business conference to attend so I will be on my own for the day.
I'm thinking I'd like to take a lesson for at least a couple of hours that day.
I don't get many days on snow per year but I'm an advanced aggressive skier (would say expert but based on my technique I'm not, but in my ability to make it down almost anything within reason, I would say I am) that skies pretty much everything. I've been to UT, CO, Whistler, and enjoy challenging and myself and always trying to improve on every run I take.
From MA analysis I have gotten on this forum (if it would help you answer my question, please look at my posted threads to get a better idea of what I'm looking to improve upon), I need to work on turn initiation and turn shape.
I'm not opposed to group lessons at all depending on the size of the groups and the level of individual attention I will get.
I think I would like to keep it to under $300.
Also have considered doing an hour early bird private lesson and then doing a less expensive half day group lesson.
So what mountain would you guys recommend for the best lessons focused on what I am looking for and are there any instructors in particular that you would recommend I try to book?
