I'm super excited to go skiing next week and try my new boots! I have done alpine skiing twice earlier (2007: green to blue to red slopes in three days, and 2015 March: one day on green/blue). Self-learned, so have never taken skiing lessons, and I am sure my technique is not that good I seem to pull it through by courage/trial.
This year, I am going for 8 days in skiing (2+3+3 days in three cities), and feel like it might be the best time to lessons.
1. Should I take lessons? Beginner FAQ recommends, but I am not really a beginner... so what level should I tell the instructor if I go for lessons?
2. Group or private lessons? Pros and Cons.
3. Should I take lessons on day 1 or get myself comfortable and take lessons on day 2/3?
4. Anyone you recommend in Nozawa Onsen or Niseko?
PS: my apologies if this thread doesn't belong in the beginner section.
